Exploring Summer Camp '23

Get excited for Summer Art Camp '23! We'll explore a variety of different mediums and study famous artists as we create projects inspired by their artwork! 

Introducing your child to art is proven to support the development of social-emotional, multisensory, and cognitive skills. It also promotes creativity, which is important for the development of other skills such as focus, independence, willingness to explore, and thinking outside the box!

About R.I.S.E.

R.I.S.E. (respect, integrity, spirit, & experience) is an initiative to fill Preble County with art and culture, allowing youth in the county to actively participate in the creative process while learning life skills, responsibility, teamwork, and community development. The teens meet weekly after school, working on projects that include skill building and allow for self-reflection, in addition to other community-based public art projects.

Supported by the Preble County Juvenile Court.
