Summer Arts Camp

SPRING BREAK ARTS CAMP

At Deer Lick Park

The theme for the 2014 Spring Break Arts Camp was “Elements of a Superhero Within.” Students explored and interpreted the physical elements of Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind, while also taking a deeper look into what characteristics makes someone a Superhero – in both, the comic books and in real-life. To take a look at some of the images from our much acclaimed Spring Break Arts Camp, simply click HERE.
