July 10, 2023 - July 14, 2023


The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is thrilled to announce that this summer’s artist-in-residence, Stacy Kelley, will be offering two free art camps for children the week of July 10th through the 14th! Stacy will focus her lessons on “Learning to See Like an Artist” for students in grades 6-12. We will offer two sessions per day. The morning session (10AM -12PM) will be for children ages 10-13 and the afternoon session (1PM – 3PM) will be for students ages 14-17. Registration is free and limited to 15 students per session. Students must be able to attend all five days in a row. To sign up for these classes, please contact Carrie Heath, the director of the Gmeiner, at 570-724-1917 or

During the five-day residency, Stacy will teach students how to use tools including a viewfinder, color wheel, and possibly a value scale. The classes will be focused on developing greater mastery in drawing still lives. Stacy will teach them techniques such as properly holding a pencil, naming an angle, and finding the golden section. Students will use these tools and techniques to learn to look at the world around them with an artist’s eyes. Students will have the opportunity to evaluate and display their work.

Stacy Kelley is a newly rostered teaching artist with the Northern Tier Partners for the Arts. She recently had her first solo art exhibit at the Lycoming Arts Gallery in Williamsport. Rewarding art experiences all throughout her school years eventually led Stacy to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 2000. Her love of drawing, and interests in communication, design, and psychology have inspired her through the years. Stacy says, “I believe in paying attention to uncelebrated, but telling moments that highlight character and qualities that might otherwise go unnoticed. Mining out these nuances provides the inspiration for my work. I strive to communicate essence through gesture, a deliberate arrangement of elements, or a specific point of view. The representational aesthetic of my work leans into the philosophies of Romanticism and Impressionism. To me, art is an indispensable way to focus, consider, communicate, reflect, explore, and triumph.”

“This project was made possible through the AIE Partnership of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The PCA Arts in Education Partner in this region is Northern Tier Partners for the Arts (NTP4Arts). NTP4Arts supports Arts in Education Residency programs in Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Sullivan, and Tioga counties. NTP4Arts’ Arts in Education Residency Program strives to provide intensive on-going arts experiences that affirm the creative potential of each person, enhance technical knowledge and ability, inspire creativity, stimulate the expression of personal vision, and applaud excellence.” This art camp is also free for participants due to the funds raised by Art’s Friends benefit auction held on April 29th.
