OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - The Owensboro Museum of Fine Art continues its first free art camp of 2013, and kids of all ages are welcome to attend.

That first camp is called "Picture Painting" and offers campers or budding artists the chance to learn about watercolor and acrylics.

Students get to learn about all kinds of subjects, including landscapes, still life, and interiors.

Classes take place on the lawn of the John Hampden Smith House and in the museum's interactive art studio called "Artland."

Some of the students' creations from this camp will be displayed later this summer.

Even though Picture Painting is for different ages, the camp is broken into morning and afternoon sessions.

Younger campers between the ages of 6 and 9 attend from 9-11 a.m., and older students between the ages of 10 and 15 come to the museum from 1-3 p.m.

Local artists and teachers run the camp.

Future free art camps this year include Coal Camp in the summer and Buffalo Camp in the fall.

This is just one of several spring break activities taking place this week to keep kids busy before they head back to class.
