Supplies and a detailed lesson plan will be included. In the courses of the camp moderated by McColl Center staff, students will develop technical and conceptual skills with their peers while producing an impressive body of work. At the conclusion of each week, family and friends are invited to experience an Artwork Showcase that will highlight the students’ work.
