Did you go to summer camps when you were growing up? This past August, the Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (FAVA) and the AMAM teamed up to offer a week-long kids art summer camp. Thirty-eight students, ages 6 to 13, were enrolled and learned a variety of different art making techniques from regional arts instructors.
For the museum component of the camp, students visited the AMAM galleries and discovered ways to incorporate all of their senses into the art-making process. In this video, we see the kids thinking about how to draw different tastes, and using movement and motion to create large group projects. Watch the video to see the kids get down!
The camp ended with a “closing reception” featuring a display of all the work the created during the week.
