MIAMI (April 12, 2017) — This summer, girls ages 6-15 will have an opportunity to express their artistic and creative sides, while developing valuable life skills at the award-winning G.E.M. (Girls Empowerment and Mentoring) Summer Arts Camp. And while your child may already display talents like those of Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis, self-portrait maven Freda Kahlo or environmental writer Marjory Stoneman Douglas, no experience is required for this camp, just a love for all things ‘Art!’
