The 25th edition of ArtSpace Summer Art Camp concluded Friday, July 22 with a total enrollment of 293 students, a 16% increase above last year’s attendance of 252. The free program provided 3,000 free art education contact hours and employed six staff members and interns, which pumped more than $20,000 into the local economy.
ArtSpace is free for students who attend school in Aransas County, and $100 for those who attend school outside the County. Twelve camp sessions lasting one week each were open to children who will enter grades 1st through 8th this fall semester. This year’s theme was “Storytellers”. It engaged children to tell stories through art in a variety of mediums.
