LAEA Exhibit Coming April 10th!

If you want to see some talented students be sure to come to the Alliance for the Arts on April 10th. The 16th annual Lee Art Educators Association (LAEA) exhibit will be on display here at the Alliance from April 10th to May 10th.

This exhibit will feature students’ artwork from all over Lee County.

The elementary school student’s artwork will be on display beginning April 10th and the middle and high school show will premier on April 29th.

This is a great opportunity to come and see what students are doing in class!

summer camp is coming!

And right now registration is now open for EVERYONE! We always give members the first crack at registration because the Alliance summer arts camp tends to fill up quickly. That said, you can register by downloading the form at

Behind the scenes, we're updating our database software which should make the process of registering even easier. We're accepting scholarship donations and applications for financial aid, based on need.

Most exciting though, are the preparations for the actual activities. Scott Guelcher, a Lee County art teacher and professional artist, has put together a great team of instructors for the summer elementary arts camp. There will be theme-based paintings, literature, theatre, music, and dancing designed especially for each week!

On the Middle School front, the Musical Theatre Camp offered through the Alliance and located at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre for the first time, starts on July 1st this summer. This specifically focused workshop style camp will give the budding performer great opportunities to shine and to work directly with professionals in the field.

This entire summer is going to be a great photo op!
