Lakeview Terrace Havasu Art Show

Lake View Terrace Memory Care

Lake View Terrace Memory Care may not readily come to mind when you think of art, but it was home to the First Annual Beacon of Hope Hospice Art Show. Held on the afternoon of August 27, the show featured many fine pieces of art with a silent auction that benefited the Alzheimer Dementia Connection of Havasu.

Just a few of the art pieces that were available at the first annual art show held at Lake View Terrace. The show was open to the public, and attendees were appreciative of the variety of art on display.

KidzArt Lake Havasu

KidzArt

KidzArt is a franchise art program offered to all elementary school students in Havasu. Local art teacher, Rachelle Campbell, provides weekly, one hour classes after school at Starline Elementary.

With sessions lasting six weeks, KidzArt helps fill a gap for children looking for additional creative outlets. Rachelle works with a number of mediums, including clay, charcoal, markers, water colors and acrylic paints. During Spring Break (as well as other school breaks), Rachelle puts on a camp for the kids; all of the artwork is put on display so the families can get together and check out.

In addition, Campbell holds painting parties that are open to both kids and adults. Anyone interested in participating can sign up by contacting the Lake Havasu City Parks and Recs department.

Some of the smiling faces of kids having a great time creating art—the name says it all: KidZArt!
