Art Camp Day Five


The sun shone on us all day today. Vivid blue skies on Day Five! The Art Campers were hugely focused on the final push to complete personal projects, create bird collages, assemble prints and then transform the studio for their exhibition at the end of the day.

Intense concentration, commitment and involvement was clear to see. And some beautiful collaged birds began to take flight across the inky landscape….


Then it was time to clear the space for the exhibition – clean hands, clear equipment and paint and glue…. and sweep the floor!


Placing artworks in the space, carefully assembling and arranging their work. Thinking about titles!

The artists created their own sign for the door and refreshments were laid out ready for guests to arrive.

Everyone will take wonderful memories away from Art Camp. It was inspirational, creative and challenging – and it was fun and social too. Everyone got on really well, worked hard, made new friends. It was great working with Julian and sharing his love of art, and all of us being so inspired by the Taking Flight exhibition in the gallery. I think parents were very impressed with the achievements of the next generation of artists!!
