Out of this World! Youth Summer Camp
June 12 - 15 @ 9 AM - 12 PM
The kids learned about meteors from Emily of the Kingman Museum and got to hold a rock from outer space. They also created their own constellations, learned about the Solar System, and created the phases of the moon with cookies.
Students in the education department created a show that is a benefit for the Humane Society of South central Michigan. The show features artwork done by the students of actual pets awaiting their forever home. Students used photos of either a cat or a dog to create their drawing or painting. The Arts & Crafts class created cat toys and the ceramics class created dog bowls.
Students were asked to choose their favourite holiday and create an piece of art to represent it. They were also able to choose the media they used. Many Children chose Christmas but there were several different holidays chosen.
Visit the 2nd floor gallery to see spooky creations from students in our youth art program. Young artists from Kindergarten through Middle School all contributed artworks to The Haunted Gallery.
