Why art camp for kids?
Throughout human history, people have used materials from their environments to bring meaning and beauty into their lives. By becoming aware of these arts and crafts and the purpose for which they are created, children will experience cultural differences. In working with the materials of these cultures, they will come to appreciate the skills of these artists even more. Participation in the creative process also allows children to gain confidence in their own artistic abilities. In our American life, most children do not have exposure to creating with their own hands in concentrated lengths of time., with real art materials, man-made or natural. Art Camp provides this luxury of time, space, and materials.
