Arts camp

The Indiana Art Association will be holding its 13th annual Arts Camp this July. The Elementary (grades 1 through 6) will take place from July 15 to 19 at the East Pike Elementary School, secondary (grades 7 through 12), will take place July 22 through July 26 with the morning art class at The Artists Hand Gallery and the afternoon theater and music classes at the Indiana Players Playhouse on Philadelphia Street. Both groups will have a show and reception the Friday evening following their week of camp.

Students will have classes in art, drama and music. Older students will have classes in music for the first time this year. Students will sign up for the grade they are now completing — not their grade for the next school year. The elementary camp will run from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with a break for lunch. The cost for the week will be $125 for full-day camp (entries received before June 15 will have a $25 discount) or $90 for one subject.

Secondary camp will begin with an art class at The Artists Hand Gallery from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., have an hour lunch break, then will resume at The Indiana Playhouse with a theater class from noon to 2 p.m. and a music class from 2 to 4 p.m. Cost for the week is $150, with a $25 discount fee before June 15. Please make checks out to “Indiana Art Association” and send them to Trish Dodson, 33 Jeffrey St., Indiana, PA 15701. Forms will be available at your local schools or may be downloaded from the website, indianapaartassociation.org. For more information or to be put on the mailing list, please email Arts Camp Director Trish Dodson at pdodson@comcast.net with “arts camp” in the memo line.

Film

The Jimmy Stewart Museum will present the following matinees at 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays in the third-floor theater:

• Saturday and Sunday: “Fool’s Parade,” a 1971 production starring Stewart, Anne Baxter and George Kennedy.

It is the story of three ex-cons stalked by their former prison guard that is unintentionally funny so many times it can’t be taken seriously.

• June 15-16: “The Spirit of St. Louis,” a 1957 production starring Stewart, Patricia Smith and Murray Hamilton. It tells the story of Charles Lindbergh’s (Stewart) flight across the Atlantic.

Museum admission: members, free; adults, $7; seniors, military, students with ID, $6; children 7 to 17, $5; children under 7, free. Prices are subject to change without notice. Movies are included with admission to the museum, which is currently hosting the special exhibit “Selections from our Collections.” For more information, call (724) 349-6112 or go to www.jimmy.org.
