Edwards Center of Art and Dance opened last November, and will be the new home for Art Camp this summer. Although we'll miss the old studios in the Visual Arts Center, we will welcome these new studios which offer, among other things, climate control! This new facility is located in the former Longfellow Elementary School between Longfellow Avenue and South Street. Still very easy to get to for drop-off and pick-up of campers. The Center provides space for art studios, classrooms, critique space, and student exhibitions in the visual arts and dance, as well as a state-of the art digital media lab. Additionally, a playground and plenty of outdoor space adjoin Edwards Center. We are excited to host our inaugural summer in this new, beautiful facility!
I was blown away by these portraits created by our youngest campers. They learned about basic facial proportions, went over lines with "black glue", then colored their portraits with pastel when the black lines had dried. Beautiful pieces!
During our first two weeks of camp, campers created amazing artwork and displayed their impressive creations in a "Celebration of Art" at the end of each week. Here are some pieces from the shows!
I've put together a new website for BSAC--here it is! (Blog included) Hopefully it feels clean and easy to navigate. It will be easier for me to update as well. I hope those who were following me at the wordpress site can find me here! We are gearing up for another season of Art Camp--not that far off--registration for 2013 sessions is open!
