Children ages 6 – 12 are invited to join us for Children’s Culture Camp, to be held during the school holiday break, Dec. 21, 22, 27, 28 and 29. Led by acclaimed musician and artist Grayhawk Perkins, children will enjoy a diverse array of cultural enrichment and explorations:

Highlights of the week will include:

• The art of storytelling and illustrating
• Painting with watercolors and acrylics
• Creating a talking stick
• Learning about other cultures
• Introduction to drumming
• Introduction to blues harmonica 
  (children will receive a harmonica they can keep)

On the final day of camp, children will be invited to return for an evening campfire concert in Covington’s Art Alley, during which they will sit around the fire pit and share their newfound harmonica skills as Grayhawk accompanies with acoustic guitar. The children also will pass their talking sticks and discuss what they have learned during the week. Parents, family and friends will be invited to join us in Art Alley for this grand finale to Culture Camp. 

Registration for this cultural immersion is limited to ten children.
