Art summer camps with the Art Factory
LAKE CHARLES, Louisiana (KPLC) – Now that we have entered phase two of the Louisiana reopening, local businesses are making plans for the summer. So if you are looking for a creative outlet for kids this summer, the Art Factory in Lake Charles is here for you.
“I have always considered myself to be a creative person. It’s really fun creating with my hands, my hands are dirty right now! But during our stay at the house, I realized that I had to do, ”said owner Tracy Lemieux. I prepared whatever people needed. The clay, the glazes, the tools they might need to make it happen. Then we met on zoom. “
The Art Factory offers a number of camps for children to register for.
“We have six camps planned for the summer. We only put three kiddos at each table. We like to do things that maybe they can’t do at home. We paint with acrylic paint. We make a lot of impression. We do screen printing. Probably one of my favorite activities because everything is my favorite activity, but I love transferring pictures to clay.
And the activities aren’t just fun, they’re educational too.
“As you can see behind me, he’s an artist Kimmy Cantrell and he makes his faces out of clay, but we use recycled cardboard. We love to talk about art history. It’s good to know where things started. It’s nice to see people who have worked so hard and let them know that, you know, it’s not easy. Some of these artists have worked for years and years and years. But deep down, I love watching people create something they never thought they could do! “
The Art Factory has four more camps this summer.
