Art Camp Jr. was held this past week, and all of the kids enjoyed our theme of bugs.

On the first day of camp everyone explored building their own imaginary bug out of found objects in the Art Junction.  The second day, campers worked on painting and designing their bugs.

Picasso said that “every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.”  I think I know the answer: continue to make art with kids.
