This camp will focus on creating art projects that use a variety of media and techniques. The theme of the projects will be based on student explorations of their homes, neighborhoods, and other surroundings and will be the basis for visual storytelling. In this class students will create drawings and paintings based on collected and/or collaged photographs.
