Postmark LaFollette Arts, Culture and History center will again host a free summer 2021 art camp for youth ages 10 to 18. This camp will start on June 29 and run through July 29, 2021. The Camp will meet at the Center, located at 119 S Tennessee Avenue, LaFollette, TN each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon. We will maintain some CDC guidelines to adhere to the safety of the campers, teachers, and volunteer, so please be prepared to wear masks and follow guidelines for that timeframe.
The program this year, A Sampling of Mediums – Pen, Pencil, Paper and Clay is supported by a grant from the Campbell Enhancement Fund, a local entity associated with the East Tennessee Foundation. Each youth will also have materials from the sessions to bring home with them after the camp has ended for their enjoyment to continue working with the different art forms taught. Terri Chaniott, the current Campbell County High School Art Teacher will be leading the sessions this year. She is excited to work with these youth in hopes that she will have them as students some day. Terri has worked with young people over the years and has had great results with their progress.
We are limiting this group to 12 students. Deadline for registration is June 15, 2021. Registration paperwork can be picked up at the Center, located at 119 S. Tennessee Avenue, LaFollette, TN on any Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It can be found on Postmark’s Website at www.postmarklafollette.weebly.com. Please fill out the registration form and return via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at the Center during the days and time listed above.
Any questions you may have please send us an email at email@example.com
It is the responsibility of the parents and or guardians to make sure there is transportation for their young person to attend and be picked up. We will send out photo release forms, etc. once we receive their registration paperwork.
The youth artwork will be on display the two weeks after the sessions end in the lobby of Postmark LaFollette Arts, Culture and History Center. If any of the youth wishes to sell their work that will be discussed as to how that will or can take place. As we progress, we will discuss having a Saturday or two after the sessions end where we will invite the young artisans to join us at Postmark during our open hours to visit with anyone who would like to come and see their display. This will be announced in the local medial and we will rely on word of mouth from family members also.
Postmark LaFollette is a collaborative creative placemaking project to establish and maintain an Arts, Culture and History Center within an historic structure to strengthen social and economic opportunities for the public through the Arts.
