The East Side Arts Camp, a project of the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts and the East Lubbock Promise Neighborhood, is a multidisciplinary program for students from Alderson, Ervin, Harwell, and Hodges Elementary schools. Every year, our campers spend five days as "artists-in-residence" at LHUCA - our generous hosts since 2016 - and take classes in all major art forms and practice important life skills such as self-respect, team work, compassion, and creative problem solving. Under the tutelage of our top-notch staff, the artists-in-residence create beautiful, unique work based on a theme. This year's theme is "Earth Love," promoting an appreciation of nature, the environment, and sustainable practices. In addition to classwork, the artists-in-residence will also create an original mural at an East Lubbock partner location and present their work during August First Friday Art Trail. Their work will be on display in the Graffiti Building and their performances will take place in the Icehouse.
Students from Alderson, Ervin, Harwell, and Hodges Elementary schools will present artwork, songs, dances, and drama based on the theme "Earth Love."
