Summer Youth Art Camp to be Held

Colusa Art Enthusiast and Educator, Trish Gustafson-Ayala will be hosting Summer Youth Art Camps in Colusa and Williams this Week.

“Last year the art camp was well attended and provides a great resource for critical thinking and positive expression,” said Ayala as she prepared for the FREE three day camp.

Held August 2-4, at 9:00 AM to 11:30 PM in Colusa at the Colusa County Arts Council, 430 market Street in Colusa, and from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM at Venice Park in Williams.

Ayala commented that students will learn the use of different mediums, the seven expressions of visual arts, and will observe and discover historical works of art.

“After the lesson the children will then create works of their own,” said Ayala.

The camp is made available at no cost with the help of sponsors: Colusa Industrial Properties, Clarke Ornbaun, Mark Morris of Pearson Realty, Sankey Auto, Paul Santinelli, Stacey & Jack DeWitt, Craig Hill, Colusa County Arts Council, and the City of Williams.

The Art Camp is open to children aged 7 to 17, and no reservations – just show up.

Ayala commented that an art show will be held at each participating community at the end of August featuring the works of participants. <
