Summer Camp at the indie-pendent

The first session (June 4-8) began and they are offering two more sessions, June 25-29 and July 16-20. The kids (ages 4-11) will be dancing, singing, gardening, cooking, painting, constructing, collaging and creating all sorts of fun things. Info at VaHi's newest (and perhaps most unique?) space for events, workshops and unique artist-created gifts. In the alley behind Belly at 1052 St. Charles, more info at theindie-pendent.com.
