ART CAMP - NEXT WEEK (for a good cause)

This post is by permission.  We're very sorry for any misunderstandings as to previous posts. 

"Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth."  ~John Ruskin
We (Summer Price and Alyssa Hokanson) are holding a week-long art class where our students will be taught a wide variety of techniques, mediums and models. They will be introduced to many different kinds of art- from modern to classic. Our students will be able to test their hand at their own projects and find out for themselves which is their favorite. We will teach them many techniques- from cartoon strips to plants and animals. We will teach them about drawing from different perspectives and help them find what comes most naturally to them.
Our class will be held June 11-15th. You can choose between a morning (younger) or afternoon (older) class. Each class is 3 hours long, Monday through Friday.
Morning: 9am-12pm ages 8-10
Afternoon: 1pm-4pm ages10-12

Students who would like to attend that DO NOT fit into an age range or cannot attend when their age is being taught, please email us and they will probably be Able to attend (the age range is a general guideline).

If you pay before May 25th, It costs $40+ $5 supply fee (per student)
 ( If you pay for a single student AFTER May 25th it costs $45+ $5 supply fee)
If you have multiple kids signing up, each student is $35+ $5 supply fee
The class will be held at Alyssa's house in Orem (exact directions will be given when student has signed up)
NOTE: We will supply a snack every class and ALL art supplies. Your student only needs to bring a pencil and paper (for taking notes) and an open mind.

To sign up: Please send us an email ( ) with your Students name and age, Your phone number, and any allergies/dislikes of food your student has. If you wish to sign up multiple kids, Please make sure they are in the same email so that we can give you a discount! Sign up soon, we have a limited amount of space!

This is going towards a good cause, this money will be used to help us travel to Mexico and serve the less fortunate.
We are so excited to work with your kids and we know it will be a great learning experience for all of us!
Summer Price - My name is Summer Price, and I love art! I'm 17 years old and am so excited to teach this camp! I've taken several art classes and I like to draw in my spare time. I hope to meet your kids and help them express their own style creatively and also learn some new ones!

Alyssa Hokanson - I am Alyssa Hokanson and I am 15. I have been doing art for as long as I can remember, and I love sharing the joy I get from it with others.
