Latrobe Art Center’s summer camps for kids will focus on water as a unifying theme.

The camps, which begin in June, are for children ages 3-13 of all artistic levels and will allow young participants to explore water-based art techniques and create pieces depicting ocean scenes. Each camp runs from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and includes a visit to Latrobe’s Rogers-McFeely Memorial Swimming Pool.

“Aquatic Adventures” camp offerings include:

• “Lil’ Explorers,” for ages 3-5, June 11-13 — Children will learn about sea life while working with dough, paint and mixed media;

• “Under the Sea,” ages 6 and 7, June 25-27 — Participants will create sea creatures and underwater scenes;

• “Motion of the Ocean,” ages 8-10, July 8-12 — Kids will learn how to write a haiku while making colorful creations;

• “Island Life,” ages 11-13, July 29-Aug. 2 — Projects include making papier-mache sharks.

Reservations are required at or by contacting the art center at 724-537-7011.

The cost for each three-day camp, for younger kids, is $40 for Latrobe Art Center members and $50 for nonmembers. The cost for each five-day camp is $70 for members and $90 for nonmembers.

The center is located at 819 Ligonier St., Latrobe.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
