This summer is fast approaching and I know people are always looking for fun things for their kiddos. Thanks to some lovely ladies sharing what they have found, I compiled a short list of local options. There are TONS of camps planned on post, but if you’d like to break it up a bit with something different, here you go. Be sure to share the information with anyone you think would appreciate it. I surely appreciate those that shared it with me.

  • Gallery One Eleven is an art gallery in downtown Leesville. They are very active in the community and are always up to something. This summer they will be providing two sessions of an Art Camp for kids of all ages. The first session will be held from June 10-13th and the second is June 17th-20th. Each day the kids are scheduled in groups others around their age and they have some really neat experiences. According to their flyer, this is the breakdown:

Monday: Intro to drawing: Pencil, Charcoal and maybe Pastel

Tuesday: Painting with acrylics brush and palette knife painting.

Wednesday: Print Making (Monotypes) making plexus plates and printing. Younger kids will deal with Acrylics (9 and under) Older kids will deal with Acrylics and Oils (10 and up).
