ART TREK STUDIO ART CAMP:  June 17 – 21

Beyond the Blue Doors: Observing, Exploring, and Creating Art Inspired by our Julia Street exhibits

Campers will learn about the artistry behind many of LCM’s iconic exhibit pieces. They will be able to create recycled art trees; larger than life eyes; and miniature replicas of shotgun houses and barges. To hone their observation and drawing skills, they also will sketch “still life” portraits of exhibits. Campers will display their final pieces in an atrium gallery show at the museum on the final day of camp.
