Sharon Ford was an outstanding music educator who inspired hundreds of young people through her love of creating valuable music experiences for children. Sharon was a busy FAME Board Members for over 25 years, and during the summer, she was an enthusiastic FAME Fine Arts Camp teacher! This scholarship is given by her Family in her honor to ensure her legacy and desire for students to experience arts education.

The Mission of FAME is to foster and perpetuate creativity through multicultural arts education:

  • We believe in the value and power of the arts to kindle the imagination, encourage creative thinking and enhance human development.

Our Vision is to:

  •  Empower teachers to nurture artistic creativity;
  • Celebrate the artist in every child and develop pathways to explore the arts;
  • Understand and appreciate diverse cultures through experiences with indigenous artforms;
  • Make the arts enjoyable and a part of everyday life.

FAME is offering a fine arts camp experience for talented artistic students ages 8-16 in northern Indiana. This week-long arts camp, July 14-19, presents the FAME cultural focus in dance, drama, music, and visual art by an outstanding faculty of arts educators. The program offers an opportunity for artistic students to further their current artistic study and to participate in an artist youth community. FAME classes of music, visual arts, drama and dance are offered for campers. Daily talent sharing provides ample opportunities for performance, fun and camaraderie.

FAME will hold this camp in Howe, Indiana at Camp Lutherwald, to provide this artist colony experience to nominated young artists. The cost for the week-long overnight camp is $525 and includes class fees, room and board, and a t-shirt.
