BELFAST - Waterfall Arts is holding its annual February School Vacation Art Camp for 8 to 12 year olds from Feb. 19 to 22. The focus of the camp is 'Sketcher's Studio'.

In this art camp young artists will take their favorite and most familiar standby - drawing - to the next level. Instructor Bridget Matros said, 'Bringing their unique styles and their frustrations along, kids should prepare to overcome drawing angst with four days of learning and practicing tips guaranteed to boost confidence and improve drawing skills - while having fun! Learning to See, the secret of the Pencil Sketch, drawing games and challenges, materials explorations and cropping/presentation will all be covered. Forget the fridge - these artists will no doubt produce at least one piece they deem suitable for framing!'

Bridget Matros has been an educator for 15 years, teaching at every level and in just about every setting, from preschool circle-time to computer literacy for the elderly. Her wide academic and experiential background includes a BA from Oberlin College in sociology and psychology, worldwide travel in international leadership organization Up With People, visual artistry in a range of media, acting, producing, singing, performance, developing informal learning programs and environments, and is now a published author and blogger.

The art camp, held at Waterfall Arts, 256 High Street, begins on Tuesday, Feb. 19 and runs from 9 a.m. to 12 noon; cost is $110 plus $10 materials fee. The class size is limited and partial scholarships are available to those in need with funds provided by United Mid Coast Charities.
