Wanted: Children who love the arts

 | August 27, 2012

Is your child between the ages of five and nine? Do they love creating art in any medium (visual, theatre, dance, music)? The Kamloops Arts Council would like to hear from you!

The Kamloops Arts Council will be producing a short documentary film, shot over the course of four years,  that tracks the growth of a group of young artists who attend the annual Children’s Art Festival in September.

Kora Vanderlip, 15, is a young filmmaker who has already won many awards with her humorous and thoughtful short films.  Kora will follow the chosen group of young artists over the next four years discussing what art means to them and observing the changes in their artistic expression over time.

Filming will commence September 2012. The completed film will premiere at the Kamloops Arts Council’s Children’s Art Festival in 2016.

Interested? Download the application form, and attend an Information Session on Thursday, Sept. 6 at 3 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre.
