Space still available for Arts Clayton summer camps

JONESBORO — Spots in Arts Clayton’s Kaleidoscope and Young Teen camps are filling up, but their organizer said Thursday that space is still available.

Camp Administrator Elizabeth Gower said the camps are about 65-percent full but that children still have plenty of opportunities to get into the classes that they want.

“We’re about where we are normally at for this time of year, but I want to go ahead and get the word out so we can have one big final push,” said Gower.

The camps will be held June 2-13 at James A. Jackson Elementary School in Jonesboro. The Kaliedoscope Art Camp, whose theme is Disney’s The Jungle Book, is for rising first through sixth-graders. The Young Ten Camp, whose theme is Disco Fever, is for rising seventh through ninth-graders.

Gower said every class in the Kaleidoscope camp still has openings for children.

“It’s just worked out that the enrollment so far has been very even across all of the classes so we still have room in all of them,” she said.

Young Teen Camp also has several classes with openings, but some are filling up faster than others, said Gower. The classes which have openings include creative writing, digital photography and graphic design, drawing and painting, 3-D art, musical theater, dance, guitar, cartooning and set design.

“Musical theater and dance are filling up the fastest, so I only have a couple of slots left in each of those classes,” said Gower.

Parents interested in signing their children up for either camp should call 770-473-5826 or visit the Arts Clayton Gallery, 136 South Main St. in Jonesboro. Registration information is also available online at www.artsclayton.org.
