Hickory – Registration is now open for summer art camps at Hickory Museum of Art, 243 Third Ave. N.E., Hickory. Camps for children ages 4 to 14 will be offered Monday-Friday, June 13 – August 19, with morning (10 a.m. -12 p.m.) and afternoon (1-3 p.m.) options available.

Twenty different art camp themes will be offered throughout the summer, giving participants a chance to create superhero and fairy tale 2015-summercampinspired art, learn the basics of drawing and painting, make 3D art and sculptures from clay, wood and foil, discover the art of handmade paper, form fantastic masks and more.

Back by popular demand, the weeklong drama camp “Lights, Camera, Action,” invites kids ages 7 to 14 to act out a short play, which will be performed at the end of the week on stage in the Drendel Auditorium. Also, participants ages 7-9 can sign up for the “Comic Book Clinic” camp, which will allow the opportunity to develop original comic book characters and tell their stories.

Camp descriptions, cost and registration forms are available for pick up at Hickory Museum of Art in the Galleria shop or the Museum’s second floor offices. Download a Summer Art Camp brochure and registration form at www.HickoryArt.org/summer-camps.
