Abstract Curiosity with Bethany Miller
Campers here will work abstractly with paint and watercolor to create fun and interesting textures. They will then be encouraged to find images within the marks they have created, and once they do, they will further explore and build upon their ideas. This camp asks: “What surprises do you think you’ll find in your artwork?”
Teaching Artist: Bethany Miller graduated from Millersville University in 2023 with a BSE in art and a BFA with a concentration in painting, and recently her first show in Millersville. Miller plans to teach art at the elementary level and continue creating works of her own. With teaching experience at Manheim Township and Lower Dauphin, Bethany loves spreading the joy and learning that comes from creating.
Registration is now open for ARTS SMARTS Camps, offered through The Arts at Millersville University at the Ware Center, in downtown Lancaster. For two weeks starting June 19 and June 26, Arts at MU will present 12 unique camps per each week in morning and afternoon sessions for young campers in Music, Theatre or Visual Arts. The Ware Center is located at 42 N Prince Street, Lancaster, PA.
These camps have been created especially for children in two grade-level ranges: (rising) Kindergarten–Grade 2 and (rising) Grades 3-5. Each camp is different, and there are morning and afternoon options for both grade-level ranges and in all three disciplines – Music, Theatre, and/or Visual Arts. And the camps are open to children of all abilities.
Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both! (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.) Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity. On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week. Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff.
The staff is comprised of a team of professional teaching artists and Millersville University Arts Education students who have full clearance for working with children.
Camps are $125 for a 1/2 day session, per week, per child. We offer full and partial scholarships. Please email Barry.Kornhauser@Millersville.edu to inquire about scholarship options.
