ORANGE BANANA ART, part of The Art Loft in Charlotte's Historic Atherton Mills in SouthEnd, will host Open Houses and a Parent's Night to launch their exciting Summer Camp program for children of all ages.
April 16, 2013, Charlotte, NC Orange Banana Art, an art studio in Charlotte's Historic SouthEnd that presents fun, safe and stimulating art classes for children, has announced its Open House dates and Parent Night for the Summer of 2013!
The Open House events are on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Saturday May 25th from 10:00 am 2:00 pm. The Open House will introduce children and their parents to Orange Banana Art with a real art project for the young artists to enjoy, while giving parents the necessary information they require for this wonderful summer program.  All interested parents and their children are invited to attend.
The Parent's Night is on Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 at 7:30 pm and will give parents the opportunity to have a "Date Night" with their spouse, and to experience what their children will be doing during the Orange Banana Art Summer Camp programs.
Both events will be held at The Art Loft, 2108 South Blvd., # 206, Charlotte, NC 28203.  Attendance is free and refreshments will be served. RSVP's to be made to Sonjia Parker at  or call 704-326-1214.

Most art projects completed at Orange Banana Art are designed for immediate use - for instance, a gorgeous piece of jewelry will be ready to wear when it leaves the studio, a colorful painting will be on stretched canvas ready to hang, or a fascinating print will be framed.  Orange Banana Art encourages sharing, so there is always an extra box or bag around that your child can decorate to be used as an instant gift box.  Each child will always bring home something truly worth sharing and enjoying!  
Orange Banana Art takes their commitment to authentic artistic experiences seriously.  Having thousands of loose pieces of paper is somewhat..... unappealing. Instead, they offer each and every student an art journal - it's in this journal that students plan and doodle, as well as complete art journal exercises.  
ORANGE BANANA ART offers classes for children ages 1 13, Homeschoolers and adults.  Orange Banana Art empowers children to express themselves through quality arts & crafts, and encourages all children to develop their innate creativity, to value art as a form of expression, and to find and make art that speaks to them personally.  Classes are designed to foster an environment of artistic experimentation, learning and fun. 
Art classes are held in The Art Loft, in a historic Cotton Mill in SouthEnd's Atherton Lofts, and consist of projects using an ever-changing variety of media - from painting to printmaking to sculpture, with many alternatives along the way!  The Orange Banana Art program can help to build your child's confidence and nurture your child during their creative journey.  They believe every child has an artistic niche, and it's Orange Banana Art's intention to help them find it!
