About the Camp
We’re gearing up for the Randolph Arts Guild 2017 Summer Arts Camp. We’re planning on making an artful mess. What comes to mind when you hear “SUPER MESSY Summer Art Camp”? We here at the guild get a bit giggly as visions appear of campers covered in art projects. The young creatives have the option to participate in one, two or both weeks of super untamed creative excitement — with our SUPER MESSY SUMMER ART CAMP. Week One is June 19 — 23. Week Two is July 17 — 21. Clay projects, painting projects, craft projects — all of these and more are included in this valued experience. Each camp is limited to 30 campers. Each five day, day-camp begins at 10am and concludes at 3pm. We also have an early drop off option at 8:30am for those that need it for a small fee. The campers rotate among three teachers throughout the course of the week-long day camp and receive tons of artful attention. The classes are divided into age groups 5—7, 8—10, & 11 — 13 based on enrollment. We celebrate all we’ve learned at the end of camp each Friday with a SUPER mini-art show. The show will start at 2:30pm on Friday and all are welcome to enjoy and support the art made by the campers. Armfuls of art go home with each family and the smiles are a mile wide.
Daily Camp Schedule:
- 8:30 am Early drop-off

Here are Instructors from 2017 Super Messy Art Camp:
Week 1 instructors:
Robyn Goode has been doing art for over 30 years and has a background in fine art. She discovered gourds over 8years ago when she went looking for a new media to work with. She has won many ribbons for her work and is a part of the N.C. Society and American Gourd Society. She teaches gourd art in different places and at her shop in Sophia NC. She sells her gourd art and fine art at various shows and venues. The joy of meeting people and teaching different techniques is one of her favorite things to do.
Jennifer Pfeiffer is originally from Albany in Upstate New York, graduating from Roberts Wesleyan collage with a BS in Fine Arts/ Art education (concentration in Ceramics and drawing) and a minor in coaching. She moved from New York to Greensboro, North Carolina in 2010 and started teaching High School Art and coaching for Guilford County Schools. She has been involved in all types of Art camps and programs since she was a teen. Her favorite mediums are Clay and watercolor paints. Her other passions outside of the arts are playing Soccer and Basketball in adult leagues and spending time decorating her home. Jenn has always had a passion for sharing and teaching the arts with others to help them bring joy and creativity to their lives as well. She married her husband Matt in 2013 and they now reside in their new home in High Point NC with their two kitties.
Week 2 instructors:
Cara Bevan is a self-taught artist who’s been painting and sculpting professionally since 2007. She specializes in life-life acrylic paintings and sculptures of animals. Her sculptures are all handmade from gourds, locally grown in NC. Growing up on a farm has given Cara a great respect for animals and nature, which she express in her art.
Leigh Blanchard is the Department Chair and Art Teacher over at John Lawrence Elementary in Archdale. She is a recipient of the 2012 Distinguished Educator Award. She’s with us again for even more awesome projects. Her summer camp classes include sculpture projects, printmaking, and painting. She’s an ace at using recycled materials.
Rachel Cashatt. Rachel Cashatt is a Math and Science teacher at Uwharrie Ridge 6-12 School. She is 26 years old, lives in Randleman, NC and just finished her 5th year teaching. She has lived on a farm her entire life and frequently used it as inspiration for different artworks. She has taken art classes throughout her middle school, high school, and college years, providing her with experience in various types of media. From origami, pottery, water color, graphites and pastels to duck tape, face painting, etching for printmaking and woodworking, each demanding new set of skills drove her to learn and push her abilities. Art surrounds our lives as we express ourselves and share with the world. One of her fondest memories occurred while she was dining with her family at a restaurant. As they were waiting for their food, she picked up a spare napkin and started to fold a crane. There was a little boy in the booth across from her that became entranced and stared, mouth open wide, as she continued to fold. Once she finished, she gave it to him and taught him how to make the wings move. The light in his eyes and smile on his face were priceless. This love fuels her desire to create and share her passion of art with others. She is excited to teach duct tape class for Mr. Marcus Lawson as he directs the camp!
