The City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department is announcing a winter art camp for local youth grades 7 through 12 beginning Monday, December 28, taught by Las Cruces artist, art instructor and co-founder of West End Art Depot Shaunna Foster.
Teens will explore the fundamentals of art through various activities which will lead up to painting a mural on City property. Participants will be encouraged to play with and develop ideas into strong visual compositions. They will learn to use various traditional and modern media in conjunction with different painting techniques and styles, with an emphasis on aerosols. This camp will encourage a more articulate use of the visual language while fostering civic pride.
Camp will be held at Meerscheidt Recreation Center, 1600 E. Hadley Ave. The camp begins December 28 and runs through Thursday, December 30. Camp times will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a lunch; participants provide their own lunch. Registration for this program is free and all materials will be provided.
