MRAC Youth Mural Camp

From: Jul 10, 2017 09:00 am
To: Jul 21, 2017 12:00 pm
This is the 11th year of The Mimbres Region Arts Council's Youth Mural Camp. The Mural Camp will run from Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 21. This year’s mural camp takes place at the Silver City Public Library: campers will also work upstairs at Leyba & Ingalls ARTS.

Melanie Zipin, Lead Artist and Assistant Erika Burleigh will lead the camp this year. Camp participants will design, make tiles, and mosaic a 40 foot wall on Cooper Street in front of the library. Mural Campers will also work on other creative activities as well as working on the mural. This year's craft activities will be just as enticing as last year's. Craft activities may include silk screening, mono printing, painting on ceramic items and more.

Mural Camp tuition for children 6-12 is $165 for 2 weeks and $110 for 1 week. Some scholarships are available. Campers attend camp from 9 am - 12 pm each day.

Apprentice Interns are ages 13-14; their tuition is free with work hours from 8:30-3:30. Interns are 15 and older and are a paid position and act as "camp counselors". Their work hours are from 8:30-3:30. Interns help work with the campers on the mural work and craft activities.
