Summer Camp "Paris in July" a Great Success!
Over 30 children participated in the Shelby County Arts Council’s “Paris In July” Art Camps during July 16-27, 2012. Instructor /profession artists Ray Lynn Dodson, Edna Sealy, Susan Dennis Gordon and Jerry Roldan led the students on a walk down the Champs Elysees into the studios’ of Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt and Antonio Gaudi. Learning about impressionism, architecture, and self-portraits the students spent hand-on time creating their own works of art. Study included working with paint-pallet knives, pencil drawings, pottery clay and acrylic paints. At the end of the week the students were wished a fond “Au Revoir” as they departed the studio and crossed back into the quiet streets of Columbiana.
