The Peoria Art Guild will host Kid’s Art Camp Days during single-day school holidays. Students are divided into two groups (grades 1-3 and 4-6) to experience a day of art-related projects including “Abstract Collage,” “Art and Culture,” “Music, Color and Art,”
and “Expressive Drawing.” All are make-and-take projects. Students are supervised by staff and volunteers. Parents are requested to provide a
drink, lunch, and a snack for break time. For more information, contact Program Coordinator Ryan Nelson at 637-2787, extension 215.
