Children in mid-Missouri expressed their artistic side through fun activities during the Kemper Kids Summer Creativity Camp at William Woods University in July.
The camp for children 5 to 13 was hosted by the Mildred Cox Gallery and held in the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts. The camp consisted of three weeklong sessions, during which campers were divided into distinct artist-inspired themes by age: Kahlo Kids, ages 5-7; Picasso Crew, ages 8-10 and Dali Posse, ages 11-13.
“Kemper Kids is more than just an art camp,” Jennifer Sain, gallery coordinator and program director, said. “Students are inspired to use their imagination, create art and have fun.”
During session one, “Hip to be Green,” children learned to sculpt, paint and up-cycle, using their imaginations. During the second session, “Wild Things,” youngsters created creatures from a variety of media. The camp ended with its third session, “Artrageous,” during which kids experimented with messy fun art such as tie-dye, spray paint and balloon blast.
At the end of each weekly session, the children’s artwork was displayed in the Mildred M. Cox Gallery and a reception for family and friends.
