Art and History Day Camp offered

MARQUETTE – Art on the Move: History in Motion, An Art and History Day Camp is being offered July 28-Aug. 1.

Art meets history in this one-week day camp held at the Marquette Regional History Center. Youth ages 8 to 12 are invited to join the Liberty Children’s Art Project and the History Center for a week long immersion into local history and art making.

Participants will be creating public art to be displayed in a truly unique method – as bus side decals that will later be on the move throughout the community. Themes of local history inspired by the museum collections youth get to explore, with a behind the scenes look into the museum exhibits and archives. Art making will be multi-media and collaborative.

Pre-registration required: register at the History Center or by calling 226-3571.

The fee is $25 for the week, with each day’s lesson building on the next. The camp is for ages 8-12, with the class times from 10 a.m. to noon each day at the History Center, 145 W. Spring St., Marquette.
