Jewelry making is focus for Rehoboth Art League camp June 26-30

June 17, 2017

The Rehoboth Art League will hold a jewelry artist summer camp for young artists ages 10 to 14 from 1 to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, June 26-30. After looking at jewelry made by art league jewelers and learning the tools and terms of the trade, student artists will learn how to create jewelry using wire to cage a rock or shell. They will also paint decorative and meaningful papers which will be used to make rolled paper beads that can be incorporated into bracelets, earrings and necklaces. The cost for this weeklong camp is $200 for members and $235 for nonmembers.

The art league also is offering a blend of weeklong, half-day camps and all-day camps for children ages 5 to 15. Educational, hands-on art experiences are taught by professional artists and art instructors. Some of this year's camps include Eric Carle's very interesting insects, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), creating memory journals, book artist and the art of comics as well as the popular pottery for kids and art starters. The summer camp programs begin the week of Monday, June 19, and end the week of Monday, Aug. 21. Children will enjoy the arts in a fun, developmentally appropriate environment. Extended care is also available.
