Private art camps are being offered in Opp and Andalusia this summer.

Cathy Powell will offer summer art lessons, Rhythm and Movement in Art, for several age groups from June 18-22.

Classes for ages 4, 5 and 6 are set for 1 until 1:45 p.m. The class is designed for “young artists with big imaginations and short attention spans,” and will incorporate music, creative movement, and messy art in several mediums.

Classes for elementary grades are set for 2 until 3 p.m. The class incorporates art appreciation and children’s literature.

Classes for junior high and high school students are set for 3:30 until 4:30 each day. This class is designed for more mature artists who want to learn about sketching and drawing techniques, and draws upon the book, “The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,” by Betty Edwards.

Classes are $100, and there is limited availability. To sign up, email Powell at

The classes will be held at the First Presbyterian Church.
