The popular ARTS Spark summer arts camp will be June 17-21 at Guntersville Middle School and there’s still room for students. It’s put on by the organization Artists Responding To Students.

The camp will run 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. each day. It’s for kindergarten through 5th grade. Each student will be exposed to 4 different disciplines each day – dance, theater, music and visual arts.

People are encouraged to register now. A donation of $40 is suggested for the first child from a family and $30 for each additional child. The donation can be made on the first day when parents drop off their kids. A parent program is held on Friday so parents can see what their children have been up to all week.

“We have some special programs and teachers planned this year,” said Val Jones, the Guntersville High art teacher who has been involved in the program for years.

Kate White, the engineering teacher at Guntersville High, is planning some STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math), Jones said. One of those projects will be teaching children how to write their names in code. Another will be “drawbots.”

Band director Corey Hyman will be involved in the music portion of the program.

Guntersville veterinarian Dr. Martha Bargo will bring animals for a program one day.
