Summer Art Camp 2013 took the children's imaginations on a trip around the world! Students explored cultures and art forms from six continents as they created an array of projects including cave paintings, totem poles, masks, ancient clay tablets, lanterns, pottery, kirigami and flying machines to name a few. They were excited to learn about famous artists as well such as Picasso, Seurat and Leonardo da Vinci.
The three weeks of creative activities culminated with an exhibition in the Lower Gallery on July 26. Parents , relatives and friends who attended the reception were mesmerized to see the talent diplayed. Thanks to the great response to the program this year, the show extended to the Studio and classroom area! Students also received a T-shirt with a unique design of their own.
