Art Camp 2013 was the first CHT Art Camp. We had 32 participants that arrived on Friday not knowing what to expect in terms of lodging, workshop space, etc. On Monday we left Brownwood with smiles on our face, Camp was a success. We plan to repeat the experience in February with old and new campers. We have four outstanding workshops planned with excellent leaders.

Arrival will be on Friday, any time after 12:00pm, dinner will be at 6:00pm. We will leave Brownwood on Monday, after breakfast.
