Art Camp was Successful at the Art Center

Painting was explained to students
who also had questions they
wanted answer
Art Camp, 2011, was a success. Rachael Eggleston worked her magic once more. Each day twelve classes given by seven instructors were filled with anywhere 19 to 27 students which means the average number of students exposed to the magic of art per day numbered around 150 or 160.  For some students, Art Camp is one of the few opportunities students are given in the arts. Any authentic research will prove how important the arts are in education, in the process of enabling the mind to learn more efficiently.

Printmaking replaced hands on batik
for this session.
Most students got a chance to perform
a step in the process of creating a relief

Students were surprised to learn that
books can be made at home.

Rachael Eggleston replaced rock sculpture
with demonstrations on how to create
sculpture using the plaster cast method.

The dance demo proved to be lots of
fun for instructors and audience alike.

The audience really enjoyed taking part
in the process.

As in years past, black smithing was
a favorite of all.

Terry Shepherd performed magic with his potter's wheel and clay.

Who knows, the next world famous
potter may be in the audience.

Thanks to the Grand Junction Symphony,
students were exposed to the elements
of music.
