 From our 2016/2017 Participants:

What does ArtSmart do really well?

Gives the children lots of interesting art concepts and uses many different materials that they wouldn’t ordinarily get to work with. Tuesday we worked with felted wool!

 What do you like most about ArtSmart?

Our instructor gives us background information about the artist. And the materials we use are so much fun and interesting.

 Do you have any other comments, questions, or concerns?

We love our instructor, Ms. Melissa! She is so fun and you can tell she loves her job! She always has a smile and wonderful, positive comments for our kids.

 

ArtSmart Summer Camp

We are so thrilled to be supported by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina!  Their generous donation allowed us to continue to offer free summer art camps to the students who attend the

 

 Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater High Point! ArtSmart Summer Camp is

 

also sponsored in part by an education grant from Wells Fargo.

These girls are working on Aboriginal – style painting at the West End Boys and Girls Club of Greater High Point.
