In celebration of our new art based program and activities designed specifically with our veterans in mind, Helen Arts & Heritage center is hosting a Veteran's Night Out for veterans and a guest. The evening will be casual and comfortable, a time to get acquainted with each other while enjoying a delicious meal and music provided by local musician, Kurt Johnson.
During the evening's event, veterans will learn of the plans we have in store for them! We'll explain how each program session will work and just touch on the many opportunities and possibilities available to build existing skills, enhance inner talents and more!

2015 Student Art Competition & Reception Honoring the Art Students of the White County School System
It's time to register your child for our 2015 Summer Art Camp! We always have a fun time being creative and hope you will allow us to share some exciting techniques with your child this summer! The very first day will be all about pottery. Kids will learn the basics of molding clay into their own shapes and sizes, designing their own one-of-a-kind piece of art. After a short drying process, they will return to their pieces for the glazing process and will learn the basics of what glazing pottery is all about. Their work will then undergo the final firing process and will be ready for them to claim ownership of their fantastic artwork in pottery. They will enjoy many other less time consuming projects throughout the four day camp, enjoying fun opportunities to create their own artwork in an array of media forms.
$85 per child for 4 day art camp
$65 Family Discount, for 2 or more children from same family
Online registration and payment available by clicking on our Calendar/Art Education link above
