CREATING YOUR VISION
Group Leaders: Margaret and Tammy
The ARTS group was comprised of serious art students who had many varied interests from ANIME to miniature SCULPTURE, to WATERCOLOR, PAINTING, DRAWING… so the group structured our time together by having a mini-art lesson in the mornings taught by Margaret (professional artist and Children’s Museum of the Arts teaching artist) and in the afternoons we went on trips and/or worked on our personal projects.
