Hallock Camp Art

Kittson Central School district is once again sponsoring summer Camp Art July 16 – 20, 2012.  Teresa Cox of the Walker Art Center will help students problem-solve through painting and sculpture; self-taught guitarist Charlie Maguire will instruct in songwriting; and Sharra Frank will direct students through the creation of mixed-media mosaics.

Children who have finished kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to participate in the week’s art camp activities. Students in junior and senior high will have the opportunity to work with artists of choice for one-hour evening classes. Students’ fees are $15 each, with a maximum of $30 per family. Adults may attend evening classes for just $10, but parents whose children are enrolled in the Camp Art program may attend evening classes free.

As in past years, Camp Art will finish with an art show for the community on Thursday evening showcasing everyone’s fine work. For more information, contact Shannon Christenson at the school at 218-843-3682.

9/11 event in Newfolden

Today is 9/11/11 and the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council provided funds for the wonderful commemorative event that took place in Newfolden this morning.  The choir and band and select groups provided high quality music and the visual art backdrops created by local schools were a nice addition to the stage.  It was an amazingly large crowd!  The event was very well organized.  Congratulations to all the volunteers and the 9/11 committee!  – Mara Wittman
