Cougar OiL, Arts revive, true East Selma holds art Camp

The Cougar Oil//Arts Revive/ True East Selma Art Camp concluded this week.

The week-long event on Maxey Street featured aspiring artists in Selma and Dallas County.

Rex Jones of Cougar Oil said that he was pleased with the event’s turnout.

“It was incredible,” Jones said. “We had some great kids and it has been an awesome experience.”

Jones said the project he wanted to work on.

“The Art Shop is something I have been working on for a couple of years now and it was awesome to have our 1st Art Camp there with True East Selma,” Jones said.

Jones said he enjoyed working with the kids and different organizations. “My favorite thing was getting to interact with the kids,” Jones said. “They were such great kids that had so much talent. I think I took more away from working with this group than they did.”

Jones also thanked Toby Blythe and Kyler Nordin of True East Selma. “Toby and Kyler did a great job leading this spectacular group of kids.”
