About this project

Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts is working on raising money to help fund our Summer Kids Art Academy. Kids in the community are under served when it comes to creativity and arts experiences. The academy is designed to give kids in our area visual and literary arts activities. Kids will learn more about the arts through activities in painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery, writing, and song. They will explore themes of landscapes, portraits, still-life, and creatures of myths and legends. In the process of exploration, the kids will also be learning about well-known artists and art history.

  • 100-120 kids attend the academies
  • 15 different activities are offered
