Katie’s Art Camp at Heard-Craig House in McKinney on June 28


 

BY BARBARA JOHNSON

Katie’s Art Camp on June 28 from 10 a.m. to noon is for children ages 8 to 12.  Young artists will meet in the Carriage House for an art class much like young Katie Heard attended in 1894.  


The artists will receive watercolor instruction and create a masterpiece to take home.  The camp concludes with a tour of the historic Heard-Craig House where the young artists will see Katie Heard’s art from the late 1800s.   

Reservations are required for the $15 camp.
 
Tours of the historic Heard-Craig House are offered on Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. and 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Saturday.   

The tours provide information on the Heard family and their significant contributions to the well-being and growth of McKinney.  The Heard-Craig House, built in 1900, still contains the Heard family’s heirlooms, art collection, personal memorabilia and furniture.  The generous hospitality of the Heard family made this residence a center of social, business, art and literary activities. 

Tours are $5 per person and large tour groups may request private tours on days other than regular tour days. Call 972-569-6909.


Barbara Johnson is Executive Director of the Heard-Craig Center for the Arts in McKinney.
