We call it “Art Soup.”
Picasso in Paris, Age 6 - 13

You may know her through the Artwise Artist-in-the-schools program where she is a favorite of all students, however, this is only a portion of what she does for the arts in Grand Forks. This camp will include taking a “journey” to visit Paris and an artist or two from history while we study and try creating similar work. Of course, she infuses tons of fun and surprises in her camps.
