Proceeds from the evening’s festivities support the Timmons Arts Foundation Cultivating the Arts Youth Summer Camp – providing children from underserved communities an opportunity to experience the arts through educational and enrichment programs.
Timmons Arts Foundation – in partnership with Arkansas Baptist College, The Derek Lewis Foundation, Pulaski County Youth Services, PepsiCo Foundation, The First Tee of Central Arkansas and Bass Pro Shops – will host the fourth annual Cultivating the Arts Youth Summer Camp in July. The five-week arts camp is available to students, ages 6-12 years old, with an interest in the arts. Participants receive instruction in six areas of art: visual art, vocal performance, instrumental music, dance, theatre and fashion design. The foundation believes students deserve access to a quality and complete education; learning through the arts and self-expression are essential components. Students also receive instruction in fitness activities and education in nutrition.
