    Bit to Do

    Back in June, my daughter attended a small art day camp that was hosted by her school’s art teacher. She and a handful of friends really enjoyed the 4 hours each day for a week outside at her teacher’s house. They painted, molded with clay, tie-dyed t-shirts, and created a beautiful mosaic picture frame. She entered one of the art pieces that she painted onto canvas into the local Jefferson County 4-H fair. My daughter really thrives on art and writing; I tell her all of the time that she is my “creative soul.” In Louisville, you can go anywhere throughout our great city and find wonderful art opportunities for children, teens, families, and adults as well. Here are some opps that are still available if you jump on them this week and get signed up.

    The Sketchbook Project is today, Wednesday, July 10 at Mellwood Art Center. This project, a traveling library of artists’ sketchbooks (some 4500) is brought to Louisville via a bookmobile by a husband/wife duo. The Sketchbook Project hails from Brooklyn Art Library in New York. Everybody: families, singles, couples alike, is invited to Mellwood Art Center from 2pm-8pm today to view these art collaborations. Admission and parking are free.
