NC Museum of Art Camp 2012

Posted by Carmen Ledford on Saturday Jul 14, 2012 Under Art Museums, Claire, Homeschool, Kid's Corner


Claire went to a week of Art Camp at The North Carolina Museum of Art.  The theme of the week was Egyptian Art. She had a great week and wanted to get there first each day and stay as long as possible. She made pyramids, a sphinx, and cobras out of clay. She painted an Egyptian scene on papyrus. Her favorite project  was an adventure pouch that she sewed and painted.  The last day of  camp parents were invited to see an art show where each of the students displayed their work. Claire was also very excited to show her dad another piece she made a few weeks ago that is now on display at the museum. She made it at one of the museum’s Family Fun Saturdays. We toured the special traveling exhibit- El Anatsui- When I Last Wrote to You About Africa.  Claire and I really enjoyed the exhibit. He used a variety of medias and many pieces were made from trash. Claire created the sculpture piece from wood and metal scraps. It represents our Disney cruise with the four of us on the ship and the Statue of Liberty behind us. The Family Fun Saturdays are always great and I encourage you to go on their website and check them out. Their summer camps usually post in February and fill up fast so sign up early.
