It was a packed art camp at The Sudie Fulford Center of East Georgia State College June 6-8. Campers were taught by Romunda Gagliardo of Pinewood Christian Academy, and assisted by Jerica Scott, 2022 graduate of Emanuel County Institute, and Emily Turner, 2022 graduate of Swainsboro High School. Among assignments, students learned how to draw, paint, and make clay pinch pots and door hangers. The camp, for rising third through fifth grade students, is in its sixth year and has proven to be very popular. The art camp is made possible by a generous grant from Mill Creek Foundation, which pays for each student, daily refreshments, and the salaries of the teacher and assistants. “We have always had incredible support from Mill Creek Foundation and East Georgia State College,” said Jacquie Brasher, executive director of Emanuel Arts Council. “They are a lifeline for our nonprofit organization and we appreciate them very much.”
