Students enjoy Winter Camp at Walter Anderson Museum of Art

While school is out for winter break, students are enjoying a winter-themed art camp at Walter Anderson Museum of Art.

The three-day art camp started yesterday. Children ages 9 to 14 have been focusing on holiday motifs and the landscapes and living things that emerge when the nights are long and the temperatures drop.

Campers used methods such as drawing, printmaking, and watercolor to give life to nocturnal creatures and winter scenes. Director of Education Tony Difatta said, “We do teach them that art involves science and math and geometry and that the way that we look at the world and the way we create things through creative expression and that it’s really important for people to have creative expression especially for kids, it gives them something to do that’s fun that they can learn from and they are not just staring at a screen all day long.”

Mark your calendars because the museum will host a Mardi Gras mini camp in February.
