Story posted April 23, 2004

The Bowdoin Summer Art Camp is now accepting registrations for this summer's weeklong sessions.

Bowdoin's art camp is fully supervised, is led by professional artists, and takes place in the Bowdoin College art studios. Sessions for children ages 5 and up begin July 6.

Campers are encouraged to be creative with a variety of art materials, and to see, think, and imagine with an artist's eye.

Bowdoin offers a morning camp for children ages 5-6, a full-day camp for children ages 7-9, and summer studios in the afternoon for children ages 10 and up.

This summer's camps for youth ages 10 and up include "Inside/Outside 3D: Building Sculpture with Armature" led by sculptor Cynthia Atwood; "Drawing on Medieval Times" led by artist Lucinda Bliss; and "Dance Discoveries" led by dancer and actor Betsy Dunphy.

Camps for children ages 7-9 include "Nature's Special Effects" with artist Ann Heilmeier; "When Color and Collage Sing: Animals and Their Habitats" with musician and artist Ted DeMille; "Berries, Brushes Color, Clay, and Stone" with artist Robin Brooks; and "Beasts of Bowdoin: Creatures of Mythology with Lucinda Bliss."

For children ages 5-6, Bowdoin offers two sessions of "Exploring the Many Languages of Art" with Robin Brooks and Lucinda Bliss, as well as "Moving with Imagination" with Betsy Dunphy.
