Spruill Center for the Arts introduces new art programs for grades K-8
Afternoon art programs, Wonderful Wednesday school break camp, Virtual Hubs
"After running a successful summer camp with over 250 campers we are excited to continue offering a safe, creative space to children amidst this virtual world," said Spruill Education Director, Kristin Wilder. Both the weekday program and Wonderful Wednesday will be limited in space to meet social distance best practices and facemasks will be required of all attendees.
In addition to the "hands-on" arts programs, Spruill will also be offering Virtual Hubs for children (grades 2-8) who require WiFi in a safe hygienic place to participate in their school's virtual programming;
Spruill understands there is a need for art in providing peace of mind, creative outlets and gathering as a community. However, not every child has access to art or the means to take a class. As a result, we will be awarding scholarships for our weekday afternoon art program, our Wonderful Wednesday camp and our Virtual Hubs. Children can come to Spruill in a socially distanced manner to interact and create art as a means of self-expression during this trying time.
Our weekday afternoon art program will meet once a week (Monday or Thursday) from 3:30-5:30pm for one month starting in September.
Wonderful Wednesday camp: 9:00am-3:00pm. Children will explore drawing, painting, clay and more.
Virtual hubs will meet 4 days a week (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri) from 8:00am-3:00pm.
