SullivanMunce Cultural Center offers some summer artistic camp options for ages 7-17. SullivanMunce, 225 W. Hawthorne St., Zionsville, offers five different kinds of camps.
“The instructors are usually college graduates or college-aged men and women who are studying art education,” SullivanMunce executive director Cynthia Young said.
Soyong Partington, who teaches regularly at SullivanMunce and is also one of the summer instructions.
“Last year the combo camps were really popular,” said Young, of the camps for ages 7-11.
The art/science combo camps are set from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 11-15, July 18-22 and July 25-29. The cost is $200 for SullivanMunce members and $235 non-members.
“It’s science as it relates to art,” Young said. “They do different kind of science projects. I know they worked with magnetic paint last year. They also made crystals. They made their own solar system and things like that.”
The art/clay combo features drawing, painting and clay from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 6-10 and June 20-24. Half the day is focused on design and drawing and the second half in the clay studio with hand building and working on the pottery wheel.
It costs $325 for members and $350 for non-members.
“It’s more cost because it’s costly to run the kilns and there is the materials and electricity,” Young said.
The youth clay camps (ages 7-11) are set for 9 a.m. to noon June 13-17 and June 27-July 1. The cost is $180 for members, $215 for non-members.
There are two camps designed for teens, ages 12-17. The art camps featuring drawing and painting are from 9 a.m. to noon June 13-17 and June 27-July 1. Cost is $150 for members and $185 for non-members.
The clay camps run on those same two weeks from 1 to 4 p.m. The cost is $180 for members and $215 for non-members.
