Summer Art Camps Welcome Lincoln Parish Kids


Many children in Lincoln and surrounding parishes tap in to their creative side this week in summer art camps.

The sessions, hosted by North Central Louisiana Arts Council, feature two- and three-dimensional art, drama, and music.  "The visual art classes are really about experimentation," says NCLAC Executive Director Jessica Slaughter.  "They get to use a lot of different items in combination and see what happens," she said.

Camps are this week in Ruston, followed by sessions in Jonesboro and a second Ruston date in July.

The arts council also wraps up a major fund drive this Thursday.  The announcement of a prize drawing winner caps Keep The Arts Afloat campaign.  "This is a major project generating funds for program support through the council," said Slaughter.
