Evening Events at BAA Art Camp:

Movie Night -Thursday June 13th at 6pm at BAA

“Here is a children’s film made for the world we should live in, rather than the one we occupy. A film with no villains. No fight scenes. No evil adults. No fighting between the two kids. No scary monsters. No darkness before the dawn. A world that is benign. A world where if you meet a strange towering creature in the forest, you curl up on its tummy and have a nap.” – Roger Ebert

Art Talk –Thursday June 20 at 6pm at BAA

Guest speaker will be local artist and art teacher Taryn Singelton. She will tell us about her art career and show us what inspires her to create.
