Young artists learn about sculptures at Summer Art Camp

OSKALOOSA — Young artists learned about sculpture this past week at the Oskaloosa Art Center’s Summer Art Camp.

During the week, camp participants learned about four different kinds of sculpture and the artwork they created will be featured in an art show slated for Friday. This past week was the third week of the Summer Art Camp.

“Today is finish-up day,” art teacher Matt Kargol said Friday. Kargol is the vice president of the Fine Arts and Cultural Events of Mahaska County.

During this past week, camp participants learned about wire sculpture on Monday, sculptures by Giacometti Alberto on Tuesday, tape sculptures by Rune Olsen on Wednesday, and life-size packing tape sculptures on Thursday and Friday, Kargol said.

The art students will have a culminating art show on Friday, July 18, from 4 to 8 p.m. to finish out art camp, he said.

“We have one more week,” Kargol said Friday. There’s still room for this week’s art classes, he added.

If people are interest in enrolling their children in the final week of summer art camp, they can call (641) 676-4694 or find registration forms at www.faceofmahaska.com

Oskaloosa Art Center Director Sarah Kargol said that the center’s fall schedule will be out at the end of July. The classes are open for both adults and children. The classes will cover mediums such as drawing, print making, Art After School, “date night” art class, and will feature a social painting night in September, she said.
