Art Camp

Art camp was a complete success this year. We started with funny faces....

Then got down to the business of creating visual communication! The kids really know how to speak the language!

We had a bunch of fun!

And, of course, terrific art was created. Each student went home with a pile of great new work.

We Started with Funny Faces....

Some say Georgia has the best peaches. I guess they have never tried a South Carolina Peach! They have been especially good this year. Here are a couple peach paintings. Both 6x6 Oils.
