Keeping kids creative over winter break at BellinghamArt

BellinghamArt hosts several children’s winter art camps, a great way for children from age 4 through teens to create quality artwork over the holiday break, Dec. 29-31, at 1701 Ellis St.

Kids will use their creativity, learn new skills, and have fun drawing, painting and creating art. The youngest artists will enjoy daily narrated stories and music. Each winter art camp will follow a winter theme and includes all art materials, tools and a daily healthy snack.

Lynn Zimmerman, owner and creative director of BellinghamArt, says the classes “reflect a conviction that anyone, at any age, can learn to draw and paint. Our supportive environment is free of competition and other distractions helps to foster the concentration necessary for all of our students to achieve their artistic goals.”

“Drawing is the foundation for all visual art and learning the basics gives students an appreciation for art and world cultures,” she says. “It gives them tools for creative expression, improved problem solving skills, and pride in their artistic accomplishments. By breaking down the art subject into simple shapes and building on that one step at a time, our students learn to see the individual parts that make up drawings and paintings.”
