University of Montevallo sponsors art camp

MONTEVALLO–The University of Montevallo Office of Service Learning and Community Engagement will sponsor a summer camp for students who are entering 5th through 12th grades and who are interested in creating art in a community setting. Funded by CAWACO Resource Conservation and Development Council Inc., the camp will consist of three sessions spanning the first three weeks in June. Instructors include university faculty, staff and students. Lunch and all materials will be provided.

Campers will provide input into a mural design promoting preservation and protection of Montevallo’s natural resources. This mural will be painted on the wall of the Subway building facing McDonald’s in Montevallo. Throughout the duration of the camp, campers will visit many of Montevallo’s natural resources.

As an example of the concept behind this project, the Montevallo Recycling Center was given an artistic facelift during the summers of 2012 and 2013 by University of Montevallo professor Collin Williams and the students in his Community Art classes.

Orientation for campers and parents will be held Friday, May 30, at 6 p.m., at the Montevallo Boy Scout Lodge adjacent to Parnell Library on Park St. The cost is $25 per camper per session.

For additional information, contact UM’s Office of Service Learning and Community Engagement at 205-665-6006 or servicelearning@montevallo.edu .
