Week 9 – Art Camp Recap and What’s Ahead

Welcome back returning readers and first timers alike! We are now in the middle of the last week of summer camps. It’s unbelievable that fall is almost upon us, and we are sad that camps are coming to a close, because we had so much fun with our students this summer! Once again we’re sharing some amazing student work from last week, and to offering another peek at what goes on in the camps:

Summer camps might be over, but we offer four seasons of art classes at AAC. These classes are a great supplement to learning about art in school and are great for the little artist in your family. It doesn’t stop there though, we offer adult education, as well!

Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stayed tuned for details on upcoming classes!

Additionally, exhibitions are always on display in our galleries, which are great if you are looking to fill an art-shaped hole in your life! On view until October 5 is REPRISE: 40 to the Fore, a show that remixes four of our most ground-breaking exhibitions from the last 40 years. Remember, we have art on all three levels – so go upstairs and see the resident artist show: ORGANIC TALES by Alice Whealin and Si Jae Byun.

Next Saturday, Sept. 6 we open the annual This is My City exhibition. Every year, our teen summer camp by the same name gets to explore and document the urban villages of Arlington while learning the fundamentals of photography. In the fall, the student work is exhibited in the Jenkins Community Gallery on the lower level.

Finally, we have some great events coming up this fall:

If you have questions about fall and winter classes, exhibitions, or events, please give us a call at (703)248-6800! See you next week for the final weekly Summer Camp Recap of the 2014 season!
