Join our two extraordinary artists, Dana Weir and Katey Rissi, in a summer camp based on exploring identity! Together we will create masks, self-portraits, and ultimately a constellation map of “know this, to know me.” The artwork that emerges will provide a pathway for others to understand more about what makes you, you! Throughout history people have found symbols in the night sky that offer reflections of the stories and themes present in their lives. We will do the same thing using our experience of the world around us to inform our own constellations of self. Join us in an art making camp that is also an opportunity to hone in on you and who you are.
Thanks to our generous donors, all supplies are provided for this Summer Art Camp.
