Hardy Gallery Art Camp Presentation Scheduled for July 29

Hardy Intern Beth Servais helped develop the curriculum for the three-week Art Camp held in conjunction with Gibraltar’s Migrant Education Program.

Art Camp, the Hardy Gallery’s arts-focused component of Gibraltar School’s Migrant Education Program, will culminate in a public presentation scheduled for Thursday, July 29 at 10:30 am at the Hardy Gallery on Ephraim’s Anderson Dock. The program will highlight the art projects completed by the 15 children enrolled in Gibraltar’s three-week migrant education program.

The Hardy’s involvement with the Gibraltar’s Migrant Education program dates back several years. The organization wanted to partner with Gibraltar to provide a chance for students to engage in the arts and explore their creativity in addition to the material they were learning in the core program.

This year, local artist and instructor Donna Brown and Hardy Gallery intern Beth Servais are working with the migrant students to teach key art concepts such as color and contour drawing as well as utilizing guest artists to teach children other types of art, such as performance and dance. The instructors have built an extensive curriculum for the three-week program and try to integrate elements of what the students are learning in the other aspects of the program into the Art Camp projects.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend this program, which will not only highlight the projects that the students have been working on, but it will also reflect the confidence and creative growth they’ve experienced as young artists.
