Latrobe summer art camps feature aquatic theme
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.
