Master Pieces Art Camp!

Summer camp is officially OPEN! I just finished a week of art camp at Seacoast Church in Mount Pleasant, SC. With kids ages 6-8, we studied a different master artist each day and then worked out our own inspired masterpiece.  The children used bodies, minds and spirits to experience Cubism, Impressionism, Surrealism, Abstractism, and Realism. Enjoy the photos below.

Learning about Leonardo da Vinci and drawing what we see around us. Later we sketched inventions!

We learned a lot about art, but we played hard too!

Next weeks' camp is at Palmetto Christian Academy. In this Around the World Art Camp, we'll go to a different country each day! Can't wait!
