Pottery & painting: Art Camp 2005 at Caddo Magnet High School, June 20 - 24, 9 am to 3 pm

Caddo Magnet High School art teachers Shirlene Alexander and Holli Hennessy offer their instruction to tout le monde in 2 weeks. Art Camp 2005 is open to youngsters in 1st through 8th grades; it will happen from 9 to 3 the week of June 20 - 24. A handful of openings remain, says Hennessy.

The cost is $200, says Alexander. The fee includes all supplies, but kids must pack their own lunch.

"Each student will complete a clay pasta bowl, tile painting, mosaic, Majolica platter, Venetian glass slump bowl, still life painting, drawing in colored pastel & oil pastel, and a project in printmaking and batik," says Hennessy.

Registration: call Shirlene Alexander at 938-7283.

For art instruction on a daily basis don't forget the downtown oasis called Artspace, at the head of Texas St. There you will find artists' workshops Monday through Saturday, from 10:30 to noon and from 2 to 3:30 pm. There's a session Sunday from 2 to 3:30. The admission fee for young artists is $5, which defrays the cost of instruction and materials. Artspace remains free for those age 17 and older.

Artspace summer hours are 10 to 4 pm Monday to Wednesday. Thursday to Saturday it's open late: 10 to 9 pm. Sundays: 1 pm to 5 pm. Details: 673-6535.

And in regards a broad array of summer programs, the Times has kept a useful listing online.
