Williamstown, Mass. - The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) is hosting Summer Camp 2006 for children, ages 8-11. Campers will explore the many ways that artists create artwork with paper as a key element. For inspiration, they will visit new WCMA exhibitions ranging from book arts to urban sculptures made from ordinary objects like pots and pans. Campers will make Rock Paper Scissors sculptures using river rocks, paper objects, and kids scissors and then digitally photograph their sculptures. They will also create painted poems combining their watercolors and poetry. From these materials, campers will then create their own unique handmade books. Outdoor games and gallery hunts are also part of the fun. Offered Tuesday, July 11 through Friday, July 14, 10:00 am-12:30 pm. This program is limited to 15 participants and there is a material fee of $50. Pre-registration is required. Please call 597-2038 to register or for more information.
