The dates have been finalized for the Opp Cultural Arts Council’s annual summer art camp.

“Camp with the Masters” will be held June 17-21 and July 15-19.

Each one-week camp will have activities for rising kindergarteners through third graders from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m.

Another session will be held for grades four through eight from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Jan Breedlove, who organizes children’s art education for the non-profit, said previously that students will travel through time learning different styles from art masters such as Henri Matisse, who is know for his painting, printmaking, sculpture and drawing; Claude Monet, who was a well-known impressionist painter; Dale Chihuly, and American glass artist, whose work is showcased at the Bellagio hotel and casino on the Las Vega Strip and Joan Miro, a Catalan painter, sculptor and ceramicist known for surrealism.

Cost for the camp is $100, and class sizes are limited to 12 students.

Parents may register their children by sending a Facebook message to the OCAC, emailing ocac@oppcatv.com or visiting the OCAC between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
