The Center: Where art and recycling meet

Kids can hone creative skills in Hailey


    Is your child serious about art? Does he or she want to learn about how other artists work? Is he or she entering third through sixth grade?
    If so, then the Sun Valley Center for the Arts’ “The Art of Recycling” camp might be the perfect way to spend a week this summer.
    The camp runs from July 7-11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Center in Hailey.
    It will give students the opportunity to develop their artistic skills and engage with their peers while making original artwork. The camp will explore the concept of recycling and will include field trips to meet local artists who use recycling in their work.
    Registration deadline is Monday, June 23. Call 726-9491 or visit
    The cost for the weeklong camp is $350 for members and $400 for non-members. There are scholarships available.
    Also, later in the summer, kids can enjoy free arts activities at the Sun Valley Center Arts & Crafts Festival Aug. 8-10 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    Children will have the opportunity to get their hands dirty by trying techniques used by the artists in the festival. The event is staged at Atkinson Park in Ketchum.
