ARTIST BOOT CAMP
Instructor: Dana Squires
Think like an artist, look at the world through the eyes of an artist, and develop your own artistic voice! Students will explore and observe their surroundings in nature and in exhibits at the art museum through drawing, collage and much more! Use play and art-making to develop creativity, curiosity, and to solve problems in creative ways.
