Presque Isle Discovery Art Camp

2013 poster.jpg

Saga has an exciting week planned  for the students at this year's Discovery Art Camp, in Presque Isle Wisconsin. This years camp starts each day at the river, where Licia from the Discovery Center, in Manitowish Waters, will be teaching the campers about aquatic life. From there, everyone will be meeting back at the Presque Isle community center, where Saga will guide them through painting their own watery worlds, based on what they've learned about aquatic life from Licia. Each student will have their own 4'x7' ( feet, not inches) canvas to work on and they will be learning various painting techniques with acrylics as well as incorporating 3D elements into their paintings with such items as, :swim noodles, cardboard tubes, old sheets and even branches foraged or found on the way back to the community center from the river.

Each day the campers will learn a new technique to incorporate into their world and with the help of a really great bunch of volunteers, everyone will be well supplied with paint and tools to make their paintings come to life! 

Sunday, August 18th, all of the Campers get to have an art show all their own to debut their masterpieces. All student art will have places of honor in the Presque Isle Library during the annual Presque Isle Fine Arts show. It should be a treasure for the senses! Be sure to come down and see what the students from art camp can do!!!
