Owensboro Museum of Fine Art will present its second 2019 free art camp June 4-7. Motorsports Art Camp will feature the design and painting of a car to be raced during Owensboro’s Motorsports Festival held August 2-4. The car being painted will be provided through a partnership with the Motorsports Festival Committee which will also include a display of professional cars during the camp sessions with visits from the drivers of these cars. The drivers will discuss the mechanics of race cars and provide stories about the sport of racing.
The museum has been selected as a site for the free feeding program provided by the Owensboro Public Schools and will serve meals at both the morning and afternoon sessions. Camp session for children ages 6 to 10 is from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. with breakfast being served at 8:30 a.m. Ages 11 to 16 will meet from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. with lunch served at 12:30 p.m.
Registration for the camp is required by phoning or emailing the museum at 270 685-3181 or [email protected]. The registration deadline is Friday, May 31.
