LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Postmark LaFollette issued a press release as it wrapped up its summer Art Camp, Culture Crafting.Postmark LaFollette’s summer Art Camp, Culture Crafting finished up its month of July activities with a great photo of the youth who participated.  The photo was taken very quickly with masks in place.

The camp was operated with CDC guidelines.  They were met at the door by one of the teachers and their temperature taken.  No parents were allowed in the building.   Each youth had their own 6 foot table to work from and had their own supplies including individual hand sanitizers.   All of this was done without any cost to the parents for the Camp.  Comment heard most often was that this was needed for the kids to have something to do.

During the month of July the Campers learned a variety of craft projects and a little Art History by replicating a few Van Gogh paintings.  All in all they did close to 20 different projects.  Due to the CDC guidelines we could not host a reception to showcase their beautiful works of art.  They can been seen in a photo gallery on our website.  There is also a You Tube Video on the site of some of the youth who were interviewed by our own Tony Branam.   It can also be seen on our Postmark Jamboree YouTube site.

Hopefully our 2021 Art Camp will not have to follow the stringent guidelines we had this year and we can open the enrollment to more youth ages 10 to 18.  Please watch our website and our FB pages for future programs for all ages.   We will be happy to answer any questions you have, please email us.
