Example Projects From Our Students


Included are testimonials from participants of the Fair, workshops, and community events.

I came to Art Camp to learn new skills and see other peoples' way of drawing. My favorite part was Oil Painting. My teacher put my art in the Fair and I was happy to see the results.

I came to Art Camp because it was a great opportunity for me to get out of the house, learn new things, and meet new people. My personal favorite part was getting to be in a room with like minded/creative people and becoming friends with them. I participate in the Fair because I love getting the opportunity to get my work out there while also getting to see other peoples' work.

The thing I liked best about Art Camp was Figure Drawing and Photography. I liked Figure Drawing because it helped me figure out proportions and how to draw a portrait realistically. I liked Photography because it was fun to learn about how the camera works and then to go out and take pictures with the new information I had just learned. Overall I absolutely loved Art Camp.
