Crossing Cultures 2010
Summer arts camp at the Cook Arts Center is in full swing this week and next week. From 9am to 3:30pm, children ages 7 to 12 are learning about cultures around the world such as Italy, Iceland, Africa, the Caribbean and Indonesia. Highlights this week have included creating plates of Italian spaghetti and pizza out of clay, painting Indonesian orangutans in art class, beating African rhythms on the congos and learning lines to the Icelandic folktale in theatre class. All this action is gearing up for our arts festival and performance on Thursday, August 12th at the Wealthy Theatre. Come join us!
On a less happy note, today is our last day working with our project interns, Connie and Chelsea. We thank them for all their help these last few months and wish them a fantastic rest of their summer!
