Brunswick Arts Council plans art camps
The Brunswick Arts Council, in conjunction with several arts groups in Brunswick County, will conduct a series of art camps this summer. Four summer art camps will be offered from June 20-23.
The camps will allow middle school students to work with local professional artists to create an art project in three days that will be shown to parents and friends on the fourth day, a Saturday. A fifth art camp will be offered from June 28-July 1.
The cost for each student is $15, which will cover instruction, classroom rent, insurance, art supplies and snacks. Art camp classrooms will be from 8 a.m.-noon each day. Parents are always welcome to the camp sessions and students may bring art materials from home.
The camps will take place at five locations to allow students a shorter distance to travel. The five summer art camps and their locations are:
•The Anointed Vessels Literary Art Camp on Liberty Street in Ash will feature creative writing from poetry to prose. A reading of student work will be on Saturday.
•The Oak Island Art Guild Summer Art Camp for the Fine Arts at the Oak Island Recreation Center will concentrate on drawing and painting. An art show and sale will occur on Saturday.
•The Way of Asian Art will take place in the Buddhist Temple at 1610 Midway Road in Bolivia and will emphasize quiet meditative drawing and painting, as well as robust artwork out of doors. A show and festival will be on Saturday.
•The Waterway Art Association Summer Camp in the Fine Arts at the fire station in Calabash will have foam sculpting and line quality studies using drawing and watercolor painting. An art show and sale will be on Saturday.
•A Summer Art Camp in Acting conducted by Sue MacCullum at the Brunswick Community College campus, Bldg. A, in Supply June 28-July 1 will involve the development of a one-act play that will be presented to family and friends on Saturday.

Students selected for regional Honor Choir
Eight students directed by chorus teacher Katie Stephens from Cedar Grove Middle School have been selected for the 2012 Southern Division ACDA Children’s Honor Choir, the most accomplished choir recognition a middle-school singer can receive. Eleven southern states participate in the Southern Division.
More than 1,000 students auditioned with only 160 students being selected for this year’s choir. Of those, 20 students were selected from the state of North Carolina with eight coming from Cedar Grove Middle School. Those students are Hannah Riley, Gabby Woo, Jessica Hockett, Jada Green, Grace Helms, April Nash, Madison Justice and Savannah Rea.
The Children’s Honor’s Choir performed on March 3 under the choral direction of Robyn Reeves Lana, award-winning choral director of the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, at the Steven Center of Performing Arts in Winston-Salem.
