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.

Summer is Coming: Art Camps for Kids in June!

summerArtCamp-event

June is fast approaching, and we’re preparing lots of great kids’ art projects for our Summer Art Camps! Do you have or know of a young artist, between the ages of 5-12? They’d love to join us for one or all of these great day camps!

Classes are Monday–Thursday of each week (starting on June 9, June 16, and June 23).
Morning classes, from 10am–noon, are for ages 5–9.
Afternoon classes, from 2pm–4pm, are for ages 8–12.

Class size will range from 6–10 kids, and cost for the week is $75, which includes materials.
(Siblings? $125 for 2 kids!)

Each week we’ll have a different theme, and do a variety of 2D (painting/drawing related), and 3D (sculpture) projects that relate to that theme. (This means that your camper would get lots of variety, even if she attended all three weeks!)

Preregistration is required, and slots are available on a first come basis! We’re keeping the class size small so that we can focus on each child. If you’d like your young artist to participate, give us a call at 334-268-4436.

Themes, weeks of:
June 9 (land)—projects related animals and plants
June 16 (sea)—projects related to the beach/ocean
