Cattaraugus County Arts Council Winter Break Art Camp

Allegheny National Forest Visitors BureauBRADFORD, PA – January 22, 2018 – The Cattaraugus County Arts Council’s Winter Break Art Camp for ages 4-11 gives kids an opportunity to exercise their creativity during their vacation. This year, from Monday, February 19th through Friday, February 23rd, that creativity will be pouring out!

Artist instructor Fay Bleier will be teaching “pour painting” techniques to the kids. Brushes are not used in this painting method. Instead, kids will be doing puddle pour, slide cup, tree ring, flip cup, and paint swipe.
