Kleberg Bank Sponsors 12 Scholarships to the Art Museum of South Texas’ The Fine Art of Summer Camp

The Fine Art of Summer Camp, geared for children ages K5-12, is the Art Museum of South Texas’ popular visual and performing arts summer camp program.

Corpus Christi, TX- Kleberg Bank donated funds to support 12 need-based scholarships to this year’s summer camp, The Fine Art of Summer Camp, which is the Art Museum of South Texas’ (AMST) popular summer camp geared toward children ages K5-12 (and up to 14 years of age for the K-Pop Kraze session 10).

The Fine Art of Summer Camp is primarily made up of  individual, week-long sessions with each session focusing on a different theme and/or art medium. Session 1 begins June 6 and runs through June 10. The focus will be on the process of artmaking, drawing inspiration from artist Christian Robinson and his exhibit “What Might You Do?” currently on view. The campers will discover how artists go through the process of creating and how one decision affects the next to create a meaningful work of art.

Kleberg Bank is pleased to support the Art Museum of South Texas Fine Art of Summer Camp. Gabe Guerra, Kleberg Bank President, and CEO, said, “The Fine Art of Summer Camp is a great opportunity to promote an awareness and love of arts and culture in students at a young age.  The Museum has clearly put a great deal of a work into establishing a robust curriculum and engaging activities that support the early development of critical thinking skills important to a child’s future success.”

Registration for The Fine Art of Summer Camp is currently open and will remain open until all spaces are filled or until each session begins. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Prices vary for children of AMST members and non-members. Parents can also take advantage of pre-and after-care which runs 7:30am to 5:30pm, respectively, during each session, for an additional fee.

“We are confident that the students participating as part of the scholarship program will walk away with memorable and meaningful experiences that will serve them well into their future.  We look forward to supporting the Art Museum of South Texas’ continued efforts to engage our community’s youngest citizens in the fine world of art.”
