Summer Art Camps 2010

Another round of Art Camps has come and gone! We held three weeks of art camps, two weeks for 6-8 year olds and one week for 9-12 year olds. The children experimented with different artistic mediums such as painting, block printing and sculpture making. Many were inspired by the paintings by Lionel Thomas, which was on display at the West Vancouver Museum gallery.

The participants had the opportunity to look at iconic photographs from the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition, from the National Gallery of Canada.

The camp attendants toured the Vancouver Biennale outdoor exhibition 2009-2011. They enjoyed sketching the sculptures, and had fun interacting with them as well!
