Greetings to our Loveland “All About Art” Summer Art Camp families, past and present. We hope this article finds you and your family safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. Although we are sad to cancel art camp this year, we look forward to holding camp next summer in 2021 with the same “Spaced Out” theme we had planned to use this year.
Kim Richardson is an”All About Art” Summer Camp Art Instructor and Loveland Parent
The Loveland “All About Art” Summer Art Camp, which is sponsored by the Loveland Elementary PTA, has been holding art camps every summer since 2005, serving Loveland area school children in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Several talented certified art educators with years of classroom teaching experience have helped run this camp over the last 15 years. And next summer… Jennifer Drydyk, Aly Mardin, and myself will be teaching art camp.
Art projects and art adventures center on a new theme each year. Our art camp is a great way for young artists to extend their artistic learning into the summer months by enjoying visually enriching adventures and experiences as they explore the many intriguing aspects of art through sculpture, painting, drawing, mixed-media, printmaking, video, and so much more!
NEW for NEXT SUMMER’S ART CAMP
Next year we are going to open up art camp to 9th graders for one year only. These students are part of the current 8th grade class who are missing out on their last year of eligibility for this year’s summer art camp. Parents-if you are interested in getting your K-8th grade child on a waiting list for next summer, please email Jennifer Drydyk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although the camp is sponsored by the Loveland Elementary PTA, the camp is available for all children regardless of the child’s school district. However, Loveland City School children will have priority registration.
Until we meet again, please stay safe, healthy, and artistically creative! We look forward to seeing you next summer in 2021.

The Loveland Elementary PTA exists because…
They go beyond books & budgets
School fees and district budgets only go so far. Through our members and volunteers, we organize, fund and put on many of the activities and events our kids get to experience when they aren’t in class, so they develop a love of learning and have fun at the same time.
Engaging our kids takes more than activities and assemblies. And we all agree, Loveland Tiger Teachers and staff are the best! So we also provide funds to each of them for use to add classroom supplies, school necessities and curriculum enhancements. Last year we were able to give over $24,000 to our teachers and staff.
They go full S.T.E.A.M. ahead
This year at LPS and LES, our kids will have a chance to ‘MAKE’ learning fun in the new technology enabled Maker-spaces at each school thanks to funds provided from the LEPTA!
They make every day great
From the day each new school year begins, the LEPTA is there to inspire our kids love of fun and learning. We help our teachers and staff bring subjects to life and engage every child in new ways.
Each year, the funds we raise through the LEPTA FUNdraisers help us provide the following
