Good afternoon, everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day. Summer Arts Camps are right around the corner, and it's time to introduce you to another one of our gifted arts instructors. This week, the star of our Teacher Feature is Mary Catherine Davis!
Mary Catherine writes to us that she was raised on the outskirts of the Mississippi. Every since she was little, she was interested in the arts. At the age of six, she trained classically and by ear on the piano, but she always had a passion for the visual arts. She earned a BFA from Mississippi State University, where she says that she learned to focus the influences from her musical background into her paintings. During this time, she worked as a personal assistant of a local artist and profession at MSU, Brent Funderburk, while showing work in venues across Mississippi.
In 2011, Mary Catherine began pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree from Louisiana Tech University, focusing on studio art. She has received two full assistantships through the graduate department and plans to graduate in May of 2014. While she has been in Ruston and working on her degree, Mary Catherine has participated and volunteered in many community arts exhibitions, events, and workshops. NCLAC is happy to have her as an instructor for Summer Arts Camps 2013! She will lend her talents to two Super Saturday camps, teaching 2D/3D visual arts.
There will be multiple art camps this summer through north central Louisiana. The sooner you sign your child up, the sooner you can secure a slot at a camp and take advantage of the early-bird discount.
Registration for weeklong camps is $60 if you pay before May 1 ($65 after that date). We also have several “Super Saturday” that are just $20 if you register and pay 10 days before the camp ($25 after that date). Camp fees include a snack.
Students entering grades 2-7 are eligible to participate.
Those interested may register by phone at 255-1450, or by downloading a registration form from our blog @ nclac.wordpress.com, or site @ nclarts.org. Forms and checks should be mailed to NCLAC, PO Box 911 Ruston, LA 71273
