“We try to make our camps not only a fun summer experience, but also a
real learning opportunity to teach students skills they can carry with them
long after the camps are over.” – Lindy Casebier,
Louisville Visual Art Executive Director
FRANKFORT, Ky. The Kentucky Arts Council has published an online
directory of summer arts camps, programs and activities for Kentucky students hosted by Kentucky
Arts Partnership organizations. Programs include a variety of disciplines such as visual art, theater,
music, writing, dance and more, all designed to provide Kentucky children an enriching experience
in the arts.
Louisville Visual Art Executive Director Lindy Casebier said he expects his organization will serve more than 100 youth this summer in activities that include digital methods in photography, sequential art and stop-motion animation.
“We try to make our camps not only a fun summer experience, but also a real learning opportunity to teach students skills they can carry with them long after the camps are over,” Casebier said.
“Summer arts programs are essential to helping young people stay focused and prepare for the coming school year, plus they’re just a lot of fun,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. “Whatever your child’s interests are, there’s something for everyone in the summer camp directory.”
