I have always had a passion for art even as a young child. It has been a place where I can connect to my creator by creating works that glorify Him. I believe art allows people to express themselves in ways words cannot. Teaching that gift to young students and allowing them to connect to God though art has been such a blessing these past two years.
This summer I have the amazing opportunity to run a week-long art camp for fifth through eighth graders. Working with a younger group of students is always exciting and every day is high energy. I always loved participating in summer art events.
This camp is going to give an opportunity for students to learn about different artists in the community, create their own work, and learn more about all that Concordia has to offer. By the end of the week, students will have a larger understanding of art history, grow their skills as artists, learn from local creators, and have two works of art they will create and have for years to come. (Learn more about the camp by clicking here and register by visiting our CampBrain site).
I am overjoyed with the idea of working with younger students and showing them how amazing art is. I am praying God brings eager learners and creative children that one day I will have the opportunity to teach in my classroom at Concordia.
The camp runs June 3-8 -- 8AM-11AM is for the 5th and 6th graders and 1AM-4PM is the session for the 7th and 8th graders. I hope to have many eager and excited young artists as a part of my summer course!
