Allied Arts prepares for summer fine arts camps

MILLEDGEVILLE — Milledgeville Allied Arts will once again host its fine arts camps this summer for children who want to get in touch with their creative side.

A variety of camps will allow kids to experiment with different art forms, including drawing, sculpting and even performing on stage.

There will be four individual, week-long camps from June 2 through July 11. Each session runs Monday through Friday and last two to three hours each day.

The sessions will be separated by age group. All camps will take place at the Allen’s Market Building, 101 West McIntosh St., in downtown Milledgeville.

Allied Arts Executive Director Randy Cannon said he is proud of the work that is put into these camps and the success that comes from them.

“Allied Arts summer camps have evolved into something unique,” Cannon said, explaining that while most camps will have countless activities throughout a full day, Allied Arts camps allow kids a “half a day of concentrated art form” that will let them see if this is something they want to continue as they get older.

“The kids may experience something they never want to pick up again, or they could find something they want to invest their time in long-term.”

Along with the help of Allied Arts interns, the camps will be run by fine arts professionals and certified teachers.

Tim Oliphant, or “Mr. Ollie” as the kids call him, is an award-winning cartoonist who has been featured in major publications like The Saturday Evening Post and Highlights for Children magazine. He hosts the cartooning and humorous illustrations classes where he teaches kids to create characters using basic shapes, and is a favorite among the kids.

Ruby Werts is a locally retired elementary school and is currently in her 14th year as director of the Milledgeville Area Community Theatre (ACT). “Ms. Ruby” runs the Tiny ACT camp where kids ages 3 to 6 can experience acting, singing and playing musical instruments.
