Community Folk Art Center sponsors winter break arts camp
“Bored-it is” and “Nothing-to-Do Flu” are common symptoms of the winter break blahs. The Community Folk Art Center (CFAC) has announced its findings that a huge helping of creativity with a mug of imagination can help any kid kick the winter blahs.
The Community Folk Art Center Winter Break Arts Camp offers creative activities for children ages 7-13. Students will be engaged in performing arts activities ranging from theater projects and storytelling to singing, drumming and improvisation. Visual arts classes will feature drawing, painting, collage and various other crafts.The camp will run Feb. 16-20 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at CFAC, 805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse. It will cost $130 per camper. For an extra fee, an extended day is available from 8:30 a.m. -5:30 p.m.
The purpose of the Winter Break Arts Camp is to encourage children to creatively express their personal experiences and ideas, resulting in growth not only in self-expression and self-awareness, but self-esteem.
For further information about the camp and other children’s classes at the CFAC, contact Qiana Williams at 442-2573 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CFAC is sponsored, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, the Cultural Resources Council, the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers at Syracuse University and the Office of the Chancellor.
