Monterey Summer Art Day Camp Registration Open!
First Night Monterey's Summer Art Day Camps are designed to develop positive, creative thinking for children, using arts as a catalyst! Our goal is to nurture creativity and enhance art skills in a non-competitive, safe, fun environment. No prior experience or talent is needed! We will have fun outdoor activities, play-time and one field trip. Each Friday we will have a performance or gallery exhibit of the work completed during the camp week. Camps are Monday through Friday, 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Optional extended day supervision is available for a modest fee. Read more and download registration forms here. Sign up early for best selection!

And the opportunities look like FUN: join the community helping at the July 4th Parade and Lawn Party listed above; car buffs will want to staff the Retro Auto tent at the Concours d'Elegance where they can get free admission; or get your art on at the SeaChanges workshops bringing together youth and the community to explore water, watersheds, oceans and the way that we recycle and discard materials into rivers, lakes and oceans.

FNM Announces Greenfield Art Camps & Festival
This year in Greenfield, young people from Greenfield middle and high schools will transform ordinary discarded objects into works of art and learn first-hand how our daily habits affect our ocean habitiats as part of First Night's ArtWorks! outreach. These FREE summer art camps will focus on painting, drawing, murals and digital art. The camp artwork and large scale sculptures created from recycled objects will be exhibited at the Greenfield Harvest Festival and at First Night Monterey 2014.
Read more about the free Greenfield Art Workshops and the Greenfield Havest Festival in this article from the South County Newspapers. Find out more about the Greenfield Harvest Festival here. Read more about the Greenfield Summer Art Camps, and register here.
