Spring break is a tough time for parents. You have to work, but the kiddos are at home. There are a number of spring break camps all over town that your kids can go so they can get out of the house for a while during their time off from school.

El Paso Museum of Art Spring Camp Drawing & Painting Class:
March 12 - March 15, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Tuition: $75 for Not-Yet Members, 20% Discount for Members
Kids can experiment with ink, charcoal, tempera paint, and watercolors. They'll make a
portfolio full of drawings and paintings to share with family and friends. There are more
classes for other ages. Click here for more information.
