Next week, July 27 and 28, the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (NTVIC) Learning and Literacy Summer Camp will begin the week with Rock Painting.

Organizers are advising parents to  pre-register your children as space is limited, the camp is open to all ages but they may ask that the younger students be accompanied by an adult.

The rock painting camp facilitator is Cynthia  Snider, who is an artist living in Kamloops, B.C.

She started painting rocks in 1998 after finding a book about it at the library.  She’s been painting them ever since and only stops long enough to do her other favourite thing, oil painting. Cynthia paints portraits, still-life’s, flowers or whatever inspires her.

Cynthia usually collects rocks on her daily walks.  River rocks are the best because they’re smooth.

The rocks are painted in acrylics, and she paints anything you can imagine, from pet and people portraits to cute little hedgehogs, to whimsical fairies and dragons.

The Summer Camps so far have been very well attended and we thank everyone for their support.
