Don’t miss out on an unforgettable summer experience.
The focus of this camp is to give campers a chance to interact with God’s Creation in a new and unique manner. They will get to experience what it is like to be a zookeeper and a part of the Wildlife Wonders family. This includes shadowing zookeepers, meeting some amazing animals, helping with training and feeding, crafts, enrichment, games and of course there will be playtime with both animals and staff! We want the campers to have an amazing experience interacting with God’s creation in a whole new way!
The Helen Arts & Heritage Center offers a wide array of classes such as Jewelry Making, Pottery, Crochet, Watercolor, Fused Glass and more! Visit our website at www.helenarts.org for a schedule of classes.
Helen Arts & Heritage is extending a final call for arts and crafts vendors for the upcoming Christmas in July festival on Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21, 2019. The three day Christmas festival will be open from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm each day and will offer a variety of handmade art and fine craft merchandise from artisans of North Georgia and the Carolinas. “We host five arts and crafts festivals throughout the year and have great attendance at all of them,” says HAHC Director, Nancy Ackerman. “Helen is always bustling with visitors and our festivals only add to the list of activities for them to see. Our vendors do well with sales and our visitors cash in on quality art pieces found nowhere else, making the perfect gift choices for early shoppers. This year is especially unique for all of us because we’re all celebrating the 50th anniversary of Alpine Helen, so we’re making extra efforts to make all of our events even more attractive.” Christmas in July welcomes local musicians, Mountain Jam as well as Strings Attached Trio and will also have the Veterans Bake Shop managed by the veterans from the HAHC Veteran Art Program. Artist demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the weekend by local artists.
Interested vendors are asked to visit helenarts.org for guidelines, booth space sizes and registration forms to reserve one of the remaining indoor or outdoor spaces for the festival, all of which are assigned on a first come, first served basis. For additional information, call the arts center at 706-878-3933 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
