Summer Camp News

During the month of July the Museum's Education Coordinator, Isaac Vanderhorst, held three art camps, and one architecture camp. Our architecture camp was a new offering and it was a grand success. The young architects designed their own floor plans, constructed their own models, and travelled downtown to study the architecture of buildings including the Hotel Vancouver, the Marine Building, and the Vancouver Public Library. Please look out for our Spring Break camps, and Summer camps next year, and until then here are some photos from the architecture camp.
