How do you make an already successful Summer Camp Program even better? “MORE is better” according to Todd Still, Director of Youth Education at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. This year the camp offers programs for teens as well as year two for the iPadCamp, separateArts in MotionandMural MadnessCamps. “We’re trying to offer the breadth of programs that parents are looking for” says Mr. Still.
In order to reflect the quality of instruction that happens each week, with certified art instructors in most of the classrooms, a few years back, DFAC started referring to their summer youth offerings as theSummer Art Academy. “Though we still refer to each week as a camp, parents agreed that the term Academy better reflects how our offerings differ from many camps in the area” said Mr. Still.
George Ann Bissett, President of DFAC feels the camps are growing because of the positive experience the children are having. “Studies show” she notes “that children who study art, end up doing better in ALL of their studies, so that makes our programs pretty popular with parents too!” TheSummer Art Academywhich runs from May 30ththrough August 4th provides exciting camp experiences for children 4.5 – 16 years old.
