The Bowdoin Summer Art Camp is now accepting registrations for this summer's sessions for children ages 5 and up. Sessions will be held every weekday June 30 through July 25 on the Bowdoin College campus.

The Bowdoin Art Camp is a fully supervised day camp that nurtures seeing, exploration and individual/group creativity in children. Full-day sessions are offered for children ages 7 to 9, and half-day camps and artist's workshops are open for children ages 5-6, and 10 and up, respectively. Professional artists lead all sessions.

For children ages 7-9 the offerings are "An Art Expedition: What's the Story?" with author and artist Charlotte Agell; "An Art Expedition: Berries, Brushes, Color and Clay" with visual artist Robin Brooks; "An Art Expedition: When Color and Collage Sing" with musician/writer/artist Ted DeMille; and "Beasts of Bowdoin: Creatures of Air, Land and Sea" with camp director Chaké Higgison.

New this summer will be three weeks of mixed-age Summer Studios for children ages 10 and up. Drawing, painting, printmaking and clay will be offered at various sessions. Chaké Higgison will host these workshops with guest artists Ann Heilmeier, Bridget Spaeth and Sylvia Wyler.
