Bowdoin Summer Art Camp Accepting Registrations

Story posted May 22, 2001

The Bowdoin Summer Art Camp is accepting registrations for this summer's sessions, which run weekdays from June 25 through July 20 on the Bowdoin College campus.

The Art Camp is a fully supervised day camp that nurtures seeing, exploration, and both individual and group creativity in children ages 7 to 18. Full-day sessions are offered for children ages 7-9, and half-day workshops are open for children ages 10-18. All sessions are led by professional artists.

Sessions for youngest campers (ages 7-9) include "How Does a Book Look" and the "Beasts of Bowdoin." Junior campers (ages 10-13) may choose either half-day Clay or Goop Mache sculpture workshops. Senior campers (ages 14-18) have the option of a two-week half-day "Clay Workshop: Throwing Clay Forms on the Potter's Wheel," or a one-week half-day "Drawing Workshop: Mixed Media."

New this year are three one-day workshops: a book making workshop open to kids ages 12-18; and two family partnership workshops, one a collaboration in clay and the other a creative collage workshop.

To receive a brochure or inquire about availability of space in a session call 725-3433. For other information on camp sessions email Chaké Higgison, Art Camp director, at
