Alan LeQuire has been teaching out of his studio space since the early 1980s. As a mentor to emerging artists, he is committed to art education and fostering educational initiatives with the goal of inspiring creativity and a love of learning.
After years of being asked to host a summer camp, and after another hugely successful camp last year, LeQuire Studio is excited to announce the third annual "Artist-A-Day" Camp, a series of summer classes for children ages 7 - 10, and this year launching one week for 10 - 12 year olds. taught by some of Nashville's most recognized artists. Alan LeQuire's studio has long been the setting for adult sculpture classes, but this summer it will be home to much more—ten accomplished artists, teaching their respective crafts to Nashville's youth.
Instructors and media change daily. Projects may include clay modeling with nationally recognized sculptor, Alan LeQuire, or printmaking with Hatch Showprint's own master printmaker, Jim Sherraden. Other career artist instructors include painters, raku master Donna Rizzo, coppersmith Ben Caldwell, woodturner Brenda Stein, stone and wood carver William Kooienga, decoupage master Annie Freeman, and more.

BEST ART CAMP 2011: LEQUIRE GALLERY
Is it wrong that I felt a twinge of jealousy every morning as I delivered my child to LeQuire Gallery to spend the day with artists such as Greg Decker, Tom Turnbull, Ben Caldwell and Alan LeQuire, who came together to create an all-star artistic experience for grade-schoolers? I mean, when I went to camp, we made lanyards and Popsicle-stick birdhouses, but my kid came home every day from LeQuire Camp with sculptural armatures and three-dimensional compositions in copper wire. One day, I arrived to find kids sitting on the studio floor while Jim Sherraden of Hatch Show Print and songwriters Paul Burch and Bob Delevante gave an impromptu concert among the easels. Jealous much?
