LVA + Waterfront Park Summer Camp

For Children Ages 7-12, June 13-17, 9:30am-4pm

Artists have an opportunity to create in a tented open air environment (weather permitting) at the water’s edge with a beautiful inspiring river view. Classes take place at the Waterfront Park offices (129 E. River Road – next to Joe’s Crab Shack).

Campers will be introduced to the works and history of Ed Hamilton, Muhammad Ali, the Underground Railroad and more enriching information relating to Juneteenth and our city of Louisville. After learning this extraordinary history, campers will then create their own sculptures, collages, miniature landscapes, and paintings to express themselves and their new found knowledge. Explanations on their art will be practiced throughout the week to prepare for their very own celebrational art exhibit at the end of the camp.

All participants are eligible for a scholarship, snacks and lunch will be provided.

How to apply:
Along with an application, students will need to submit a 250 word essay or a 1 minute video on the subject “How does art change the world?”

The application form is online at this website: louisvillevisualart.org/juneteenth-submission

The deadline for the application is April 29th, 2022 at 5pm. Campers will be notified of their selection by the middle of May.
