We had a great first week at camp! This afternoon we are preparing for our gallery event that is the capstone event for our campers: we’re putting all of the amazing things or artists made all week so that they can tell their parents, grandparents and friends all about them. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by between 4:30-6 to check it out!
Next week we have two more Summer Art Camps starting! This time our focus will be on the Sea, and things that you will find in and around it. Lots of great beach and water-themed projects coming up. We still have a couple of places available if your are looking for activities for your 5–12 year old. Our morning session runs from 10-noon for ages 5-9, and our afternoon session runs from 2-4pm for ages 8-12. Cost is $75 per child, or two siblings for $125, and this includes all materials! Give us a call at 334-268-3346 to reserve a spot.
During our camps we’ll be taking our Saturday days off, but we’ve got some great Saturday evening music coming up soon: on Saturday June 21st Lenny Trawick will return with a great evening of New Orlean’s style Jazz and Blues. Opening for Lenny will be Kate and Kathleen Deal—and they are amazing! Lenny said that pretty soon he’d be opening for them. ;-) It will be a great evening for anyone that loves live jazz and blues! Saturday June 21st, 7:30pm; $8/two for $15.
Another music event on our horizon is Saturday July 12th with Pastor Foster and the Messengers. We are so excited about this show! We hosted them in December of 2012, and have been trying to get them back ever since. They pretty actively perform along the coast, so we are glad to get them closer to home. Pastor Foster and the Messengers are a blues gospel group, with roots in the late 60s and 70s. This evening will be open admittance, with entry by donation. Mark your calendar now- you do not want to miss them! Saturday July 12th, 7:30pm; admission by donation.
