ARTScool 2011 Final gallery - Open House

Today we held the ARTScool 2011 Open House to showcase samples of the students' work created during the past 8 weeks of summer art camp held at The von Liebig Art Center.
These graphic works were on display in the hallways throughout the building and on the tables of 3 classrooms.
It was a lot of fun to see so many entire families walking through the exhibit and collecting their kids' final projects on this Sunday afternoon.
I enjoyed the opportunity of chatting with some of the parents of the talented kids that took my classes this summer.
It is always nice to hear course feedback directly from the satisfied parents and kids.
Even on our final day, a few interns were hard at work unloading the kiln since the students from David Himmel's ClaysCool class worked on their projects all the way until last Friday. David is a great teacher for kids of all ages and levels with many taking his class multiple times in the summer. After a solid foundation on ceramic building techniques and glazing, kids are able to explore their creativity in 3-D in no time. ARTScool 2011 was a complete success, so hope that most students, interns, and fellow instructors will return for ARTScool 2012. In the meantime, keep sketching and drawing kids!
