Summer Fine Art Camp has record enrollmentBy Kathy Herrmann Published: Jul 02, 2013
The Taylor University Summer Art Camp, under the direction of Kathy Herrmann, Assistant Professor of Art Education and Art Department Co-Chair took place during the week of June 10-14 in the Modelle Metcalf Visual Arts Center with 98 students from grades Kindergarten – High School participating. Art Camp began in the summer of 2007 with an enrollment of 32 students and two teachers.
This year six Taylor Art and Art Education majors planned and taught lessons for the week based on a variety of topics and media including drawing, painting, sculpture and bookmaking.
Several of Professor Herrmann's goals when developing the Art Camp program were to nurture and encourage the creative and visual expressions in children as well as offer Christ centered instruction for an affordable fee. Students who participate are introduced to the visual arts through hands-on activities using a variety of media. Each teacher designs and plans their own curriculum based on a variety of subjects and themes, all supporting the overall goal of opening student’s eyes to the visual world around them.
At the conclusion of the week all student work is presented for the student's friends and families to view in the Art Department classrooms.
The 2014 Taylor University Summer Fine Art Camp is scheduled for the week of June 9-13. For more information please contact Kim Hapner, (firstname.lastname@example.org, 765-998-5322)
