The 2014 Art Camp Photo/Video Scrapbook

Sharing everything that happened at Art Camp this year would take another summer. So instead, here’s a short scrapbook with some photos and videos from the past few weeks. If you have photos of your own, please share them in the comments below!

Above, you can see the process and results of an environmental art lesson in Sculpture Camp. Rebecca Adams’ students started by learning about artist Andy Goldsworthy, then planned sculptures using natural materials before heading outside to construct them in a park.

What else happened this summer? Let’s see …
