Career Art Paths

Career Arts Paths (CAP) is scheduled to run June 6-17, 2022, at Alma d’arte Charter High School. This visual arts camp is for 5th to 8th graders. During this two-week summer camp, working artists from differing aspects of the arts talk to the students about their careers and art practice. Most of the day, the students engage in hands-on art projects, often related to the art talks. The camp will culminate with an art show curated by the students and teachers. This year’s show will be held in July at the Arts Council location at 250 W Amador. The cost per student is $100, and there are a number of limited number scholarships. The camp runs 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, will lead this art opportunity for young people. Some topics include: figurative painting, sculpture, found object art projects, printmaking, working with clay, Retablos, space-themed art, and working on boards. 

Please call Karen Conley at 575-523-6403 if you have any questions.
