The Arts Council of Princeton offers summer camp

   The Arts Council of Princeton will offer a wide range of art and drama camps this summer. Camps in the visual and dramatic arts for youngsters age 5 to 12 will be held during the latter part of June and throughout the months of July and August.
   The first art camp begins the week of July 5, and campers can sign up for each week individually, for either the morning session only or the full day. The morning session begins at 9 a.m. and finishes at noon, while the full-day session runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
   Each week of art camp offers a different and unique theme. For example, during the week of July 5, campers explore a world of pure imagination in "Fantasy & Fairytale" by creating their own fairytale creatures using mixed media.
   For art-seeking tots under the age of 10, the Arts Council’s Kids’ Art Camp features a series of eight weeklong art camps for Wee Warhols, ages 5 to 6, and Junior Jaspers, ages 7 to 9. Campers can try their hand at a variety of artistic techniques and express themselves through an assortment of mediums.
   For art enthusiasts age 10 to 12, the Arts Council offers its Art Sampler, six full-day, weekly sessions encompassing in-depth art instruction in 2D and 3D painting, drawing, mixed media and clay. Each week features a unique theme. For example, during the week of Aug. 9 in "The Art of Mexico: Oaxaca, Here We Come!," campers can hand-build Mexican-inspired pottery and decorate with burnishing, texturing and painting, all the while studying Mexican artists.
   For campers who enjoy the dramatic arts, instructor Pam Hoffman entices 4- to 12-year-olds to jump into a "Famous, Fabulous, Fantastic Summer" of seven individual weeklong sessions.
   For younger children, ages 3-9, parents can choose between morning or afternoon sessions; children in grades 3 to 6 will attend a full-day session. Throughout each week, pint-size performers will develop and create a play based on their imaginations and children’s literature.
