obo art 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (5/12/14) — The first in the 2014 series of free art camps presented by the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art is scheduled June 10 to 13 for ages 6 to 15.

"Flexi Plexi" will offer experiences in using glass and plexiglas as an art medium, and will be led by local artists and educators. Students will explore a wide variety of subjects including landscape, still life and interior themes. Classes will take place on the lawn of the John Hampden Smith House and in ArtLand, the museum's interactive art studio.

Morning sessions scheduled 9 to 11 a.m. are designed for ages 6 to 9 and afternoon classes from 1 to 3 p.m. are planned for ages 10 to 15.

Future 2014 camps include "In the Open Air," July 15 to 18, scheduled in conjunction with the museum's third annual Buffalo Paint-Out competition for regional artists. "Puzzling Public Sculpture" is scheduled Oct. 7 to 10 as a feature of the museum's exhibition, "RiverArtes: The Art of Placemaking," a celebration of public art.

The camp theme is designed to interpret the museum's current exhibition, "Glorious Glass."

Selected works from the "Flexi Plexi" camp will be chosen for display later in the summer in the museum's Waymond O. Morris Young At Art Gallery.

The free camp programming, now in its ninth season, is sponsored by Owensboro Grain Company and is the only local fine arts camp specifically designed to reach the community's financially challenged children. Half of the seats in each class are reserved for registrants from local community service organizations. After those are filled, reservations from the general public are confirmed.

Registration is now open for the "Flexi Plexi" camp and may be completed by phoning the museum at (270) 685-3181 or emailing at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The museum's regular hours are Tuesday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 1 to 4 p.m. Admission to the museum is free although voluntary donations are requested, $2 for adults and $1 for children.
