Camp Recap: Paint with All the Colors of the Wind

by

Summer Camp continues to be a blast here at The Thinkery! The past week showed us that anyone can create a work of art. Our themes ranged from “Messy Masterpieces” to “Art & Science” to the “smART” program. Let’s take a look at what happened!

Psychadelic! The smART kids played around with tie-dye techniques.

Sew…a needle pulling thread! Campers quickly learned the basics of sewing and made their own pillows.

Field trips included visits to The Contemporary Austin-Jones Center, the STG Design studio, and the Umlauf sculpture garden! It can be incredibly inspiring to learn from the work of other artists.
