KidVentures summer arts program
I was recently hired through an initiative by the City of Thunder Bay Summer programs titled Kidventures to work with 2 groups of young artists. Week #1 had me work with ten and Week #2 yours truly worked with 18 artists.
Week #1 a mixed media project that explored drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture was the focus of the week. The young artists attached the results of their creative endeavours onto the sides of a six-sided recycled corrugated cardboard box.
