Art for Kids Camp | Pierce County Parks

I have irises that have been handed down through my family over the generations, being dug up again and again, moved to another house, another garden. Here’s a poem about that sort of inheritance, by Debra Wierenga, who lives in Michigan.

Boys and girls ages 5-8 and 9-13 will enjoy this 4 day multi-media art program.  The camp is designed to enhance a child’s enjoyment of art and creative expression.  All supplies are included, such as pen and ink, charcoal, acrylic, and soft and oil pastels.

This 4 day program is offered at the Meridian Habitat Park and Center, 14422 Meridian E in South Hill,  Mon-Thursday, July 9-12. The fee for 12 hours of instruction is $120 per participant.  To register call 253-841-6812 or on line at www.piercecountywa.org/parks
