Spring Day Camp – Now Complete for 2017!
Our week-long 2017 Spring Day Camp concluded on April 14. Teaching artist Aramis Hamer led students through an educational program entitled “The Tale of a Wild Thing” in which students created their own nature comic inspired by the journey of an animal. The participants picked an animal to be the main character of their story and developed a storyline with supporting characters to enhance the final visual display. The art produced by the participants is on display at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center through the end of April. The program is supported by a generous grant from the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture.
