Starting this week, the Vero Beach Art Club is holding Creative Arts Summer Camps for kids at its. 14th Avenue location. This is the Club’s first Annual Summer Camp, since the Club only obtained an independent space in which to run Club activities last year.
The Club’s President, Paulette Visceglia, explains that the Club sees this as a way to give back to the community and giving the kids of our community a creative outlet as we come out of one of the most trying times any of us can remember. She also stressed that the Club would like to provide this outlet to as many children as possible, including those whose parents may not be able to afford it at this time.
Many members, eager to help enrich the artistic lives of kids from 4 up, are donating to the Club to sponsor a kids’ attendance. $30 provides a day of camp and $150 provides a full week. The Club already has enough donations promised to be able to supply full-week scholarships to 10 kids. Donations from the general public are also gratefully accepted.
