MACOMB, IL – This summer, Western Illinois will offer its annual art camp to students ranging from fourth graders to incoming college freshmen.

"Art: Colorful Minds and Creative Hands" will be offered to students in ninth grade to incoming college freshmen from June 16-21 and to fourth-eighth grades from July 14-19.

The June camp will teach metals, printmaking, painting and ceramics and the July camp will teach drawing, painting, airbrush, computer art and three-dimensional expression.

The camps are specifically designed to stimulate and challenge campers in an intensive week of art study, under the guidance of WIU faculty and/or local artists.
