Thank you to all the Camas High School IAA students who donated their encaustic tile paintings to help raise funds for their program. The Camas Downtown Association and Journeys Church sponsored our space and we had a nice evening with the community. If you were unable to attend the September Camas 1st Friday event, there are still some tiles available. If you are interested in purchasing, please contact email@example.com.
In the spirit of Plein Air Art, Friends of Camas Arts hosted a Plein Air Painting event at the beginning of August. Several aspiring Camas High School student artists joined us for an afternoon of painting. These are some of the pieces that are for sale from the students' donations. If interested contact Friends of Camas Arts to arrange a purchase.
Pawchella - July 9 2017 - was a great success. We had lots of fun music, good weather, tasty food, and met both four-footed and two-legged friends. Special thanks to Cedar's Academy of Makeup Artistry, which sponsored a second booth for Friends of Camas Arts at the event and provided face painting. Thank you to Camas Meadows for inviting us to be apart of Concerts for a Cause. We had so much fun doing paw prints (both the four-footed and two-legged kind). Check out our event photos on the fundraising page. Thanks for all the support. Hope to see you at our next event, Camas' September 1st Friday - Plein Air Art Event.
