Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta is gearing up for summer and will usher in the season with a Summer Kick-Off Event May 31. From 1 to 3 p.m., guests will enjoy free admission to the family-friendly “Stitching Spectacular” exhibition and children’s activities, including storytimes, arts and crafts, a coloring contest, and light bites and refreshments.

On view through August 2, “Stitching Spectacular” features intricate textile art by Irem Yazici, which bring scenes from the beloved children’s book Princess Pinecone and the Wee Royals by C.C. Bernstein to life. The exhibition will also showcase eight collaborative textile yarn upcycle projects crafted by Lighthouse ArtCenter’s summer campers. These pieces are available for a $300 donation. Proceeds fund a scholarship for a child to attend a week of LAC’s ArtCamp.

Summer ArtCamp runs from June 3 to August 2 and provides kids aged 5 to 11 with an immersive artistic experience. From “Surfin’ Safari” to “Space Odyssey,” each week of camp offers themes and hands-on projects, including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and more. Lighthouse ArtCenter also offers one-day workshops for teens aged 12 to 16 that explore fused glass, jewelry making, and recycled collage techniques for $136.
