The Camden County High School National Art Honor Society hosted “Camden Creates: Celebrating 50 Years of the North Carolina Arts Council” on Oct 3.
The event featured an art show, rock painting, bake sale, and live music to celebrate the arts in Camden County. Student art was displayed among the walls of the Camden County High School lobby for families and community members to view while enjoying music provided by Camden County High School instrumental students and a wide variety of baked goods from the National Art Honor Society members. Attendees were also able to paint rocks, donated by Vulcan Materials Company of Elizabeth City, to be displayed around the campuses of the schools and our community.
In conjunction with the event, the Camden County High School National Honor Society also sponsored an event called "Canvases for Childhood Cancer." The event was an opportunity for Camden County residents to show their Bruin Pride by creating a painting featuring the yellow ribbon for childhood cancer. The class was instructed by Mara Swindell and all supplies were donated by the members of Camden High School National Honor Society. The National Art Honor Society also purchased and sold pizza during the event. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the paint class and pizza sales were donated to Camden County students battling cancer.
