We are so excited to be able to partner with The Greenlee County Tourism Council and present a check for $8,548 for the Art Depot that will be hosting a summer art camp.
The summer art camp for children, will consist of music, dance and art instruction. Art can be a language of understanding bringing wonder, expands knowledge, inspiring, besides help us to gain appreciation and respect for others. About sixty (60%) percent of our population is 18 to 64 years of age, our goal for them is to provide diverse art and cultural opportunities. For our aging, the Art Depot will provide access to lifelong learning.
