Tammi Powlen Beck, owner of True Pure Brave Art and an artist with more than 20 years of experience in graphics, photography, painting, and design, said, “Art can change the world. True Prue Brave Art summer programs not only teach children new art skills but do so while encouraging them to be true to themselves and unearthing their unique gifts. As we like to say, and absolutely believe, “At True Brave Pure Art, we make art, not crafts’.”

Each camp will explore a different medium - watercolors, drawing and acrylic painting - across three different themes in order to create new art masterpieces and to bring imagination to life. The themes include Unicorns and Dragons, Mermaids and Sea Creatures and Farm and Forest Friends. Registration for the programs will begin online on February 15 at www.truepurebrave.com. There is a 10 percent discount if registered before March 1.

Programs will take place across two locations: Courage and Grace Studio in Downtown Edwardsville and Willoughby Farms in Collinsville.
