The two-week camp will meet Monday through Friday, June 13 through 24. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade may enroll in classes that include drawing, painting, photography and sculpture.

"The academy offers an exciting introduction to the visual arts and an immersion into specific media," said Gary Parker, SFA art instructor and director of the academy.

Classes are arranged by approximate age and meet from 9 a.m. to noon in the Art Building on Wilson Drive. The students' work will be exhibited at 6 p.m. Friday, June 24, in the Art Building. Afterwards, students may take their work home.
