Thanksgiving Camp scholarships available to Career Service

Thanksgiving Camp scholarships available to Career Service

 Applications are due today.

During the week of Thanksgiving, University of Florida’s Harn Museum is offering two, one-day camps for kids ages 7-13 (2nd – 8th grade).  Santa Fe College has available a small number of scholarships for children of Career Service staff to attend these camps free of charge. If you have a child who would like to participate, please have him or her fill out the application available in HR (Building D) or via email (contact Dana Linnens,

In order for an application to receive full consideration, it must be received by Dana Linnens in HR by 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17. Applications will be reviewed “blind” by a panel of two or three Santa Fe scholarship sponsors, meaning that children’s/parents’ identities will not be known by those who select SF’s “campers.”  Reviewers’ decisions will be final.

Career Service staff whose children apply for scholarships will receive word by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 19, about whether their children are selected as scholarship recipients. By 4:30 p.m. Thursday, November 20, parents of Santa Fe’s scholarship campers must visit HR to fill out a brief information sheet containing contact information for the use of Harn art camp staff.

We hope your children enjoy the application process. Please give them our very best wishes for a wonderful and creative holiday season!
Camp Information

Drawing Art Camp Monday, November 24, 2014

Children will explore and strengthen their drawing skills through a variety of exercises. Instruction and practice in mark-making, color, shading, and portraiture will culminate in a self-portrait project.


Printmaking Art Camp Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Children will dive into a number of printmaking techniques, including collotypes, relief prints, stenciling, and engraving. The final project will combine all their new skills in an Andy Warhol inspired art work.


These two, one-day camps provide a great opportunity for kids to get creative. Each camp offers gallery explorations, art instruction, and fun art-making projects. Different instruction and activities are planned for each day, so children can attend one or both days.
