The Estevan Art Gallery and Museum (EAGM) wrapped up their summer art camps on July 31 with a reception.

“The camps were really successful, we had a great turnout, a really good group of kids, and they were all excited about art,” said EAGM educator Karly Garnier.

Four different themed camps were held in July: art explosion, art outdoors, art around the world, and art and advertising.

As the camps were meant for children to have fun with art, Garnier said it was an opportunity for them to learn as well.

“I hoped they learned or got to use materials that they maybe wouldn’t get to at school, or in their day-to-day life,” she said.

Gariner also said that she hoped the youth learned not to get discouraged while making art, as it is meant to be fun.

This is the third year that Garnier as organized the camp, and she has noticed young people return each year.

“I have a lot of kids that come back summer to summer, so I really enjoy getting to see how the kids grow year to year,” she said.

There were over 80 youth that participated in the summer camps program this year, according to Garnier.

The EAGM will be staring a new program in the fall called After School Art and Snack. It`s a free 90-minute program that is open to ages seven to 13. It will also happen in the spring.
