Career Art Paths

Career Arts Paths (CAP) ran June 6-17, 2022, at Alma d’arte Charter High School. This visual arts camp was for 5th to 8th graders. During this two-week summer camp, working artists from differing aspects of the arts talked to the students about their careers and art practice. Most of the day, the students engaged in hands-on art projects, often related to the art talks. The camp culminated with an art show curated by the students and teachers. This year’s show was held in July at the Arts Council former location. The cost per student was $100, and there were a number of limited number scholarships. The camp ran Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 2 pm.

Tauna Cole, New Mexico State University College Associate Professor, Lisa Carlson, Kennedy Center trained art teacher, and Hiba Mohammed, art teacher for the Las Cruces Public Schools,lead this art opportunity for young people. Some topics included: figurative painting, sculpture, found object art projects, printmaking, working with clay, Retablos, space-themed art, and working on boards.
