They didn’t get to hold their annual summer camp last year due to COVID, but Arts Spark camp is back this year and bigger than before.

The camp runs June 14-18 at Guntersville Middle School, from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. daily. A $50 donation is suggested for the first child from each family, $40 for every subsequent child. Scholarships are available. It is for grades K-5.

The camp this year will be more than just arts. They’re calling it the ARTS Spark STEAM camp as engineering and how it ties in with the arts has been added to the activities.

Kate White, the Guntersville High engineering instructor, and her advanced students will be leading the engineering segment of the camp.

“We have a really great line-up of instructors as always, including Lori Bailey, Emma Burrell, Ellie Blackwelder and Catherine Beasley,” said Val Jones, the Guntersville High art teacher and co-coordinator of the camp along with Melissa Brazelton Reeves.

ARTS stands for Artists Responding To Students. The group’s goal is the same as it has always been, to enrich the lives of students by helping them develop an appreciation for the arts.

For more information or to enroll, you can call Reeves at 256-572-0107 or Judy Chalmers at 256-673-7060. The enrollment form is also available on the ARTS page on Facebook.
