Children's Art Camp
The Children's Summer Camp 2021 at the Highlands Rec Center has been cancelled. However, we will be working with the Bascom on their summer youth program. If anyone is interested in volunteering for this endeavor, contact Billy Love at the Bascom.
This program is sponsored by The Art League, which provides the lead teacher, who is Bonnie Abbott MFA. ALHC organizes volunteers to assist at each session, and we also provide the materials. The Highlands Recreation Center makes the Civic Center available as the venue for the program.
This free eight-week program, started by the League in 2007 as a gift to area children, until now has been offered every summer since.
Each week, the attendees work on individual art projects that the children take home, and also complete a group project presented to the Recreation Park at camp’s end. You will see the group projects created over the years adorning the walls of the Highlands Civic Center lobby.
