In the Summer of 2015, the Renee Foosaner Education Center offered Places and Faces, an eight week long K-12 summer art camp. This camp was designed to foster deep, personal connections with individual artists around the world and to show students how the environment can impact culture. Special guest artist Ray Turner helped our campers paint Plexiglas portraits for a large scale installation.
In the Summer of 2011, the Renee Foosaner Education Center offered Have Art, Will Travel! This around-the-world themed summer art camp helped K-12 students make connections with other artists around the globe. I served as a camp coordinator and curriculum developer.
This unit explores the relationship between art-making and play by engaging students in playful art-making activities. Students will learn how artists use play as a source of inspiration, growth, and discovery in their work.
