Visual Arts Department hosts camp for high school students

The Visual Arts Department hosted ArtCamp 5 last week for area high school students.

This year, 97 students from five highs schools attended and created  artworks during hands-on workshops. The workshops included ceramics, drawing, photography, art history, and art curriculum information.

“It is so wonderful to see so many young adults interested in the arts,” said professor Scot Garrard. “These students will add creativity and culture to the world in all areas of life for many years.”
