SAMA Altoona to host children’s summer art camp

‘Little DaVincis’ to be held July 29 to Aug. 9

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art’s annual children’s art camp returns to Altoona this summer.

“Little DaVincis: Artists and Inventors,” instructed by Sarah Jubeck, will be taught in small, informal groups to foster each child’s creativity, personal growth and interest in the arts.

Children can participate in this STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math)-inspired camp.

Children will learn about artists such as Alexander Calder, Leonardo DaVinci and Andy Warhol through hands-on processes like print-making and sculpture.

Each child will be given a sketch book to store their ideas for their own inventions, studies of mechanical devices and observational drawings. Children will work on several individual projects as well as a larger group project.

“Little DaVincis” will take place from 12:30 to 3 p.m. weekdays from July 29 to Aug. 9 with a snack break.

A reception will be held at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 9.

This two week-long art camp is designed for children ages 8 to 14. Cost for participation is $150 per person, with a $50 deposit upon registration.

This camp is limited in class size to ensure maximum instructor interaction for all participants. Sign up by calling 946-4464 or emailing altoona
