Dover-Foxcroft – Every summer over the last dozen years, Foxcroft Academy Art Teacher Jane Blay and Sedomocha Art Teacher Martha Ladd, welcome kids to campus for Foxcroft Academy Summer Art Camp. The program has grown over the years in numbers of campers and program offerings, and it has become a summer staple for many budding young artists.
“This week of the year is always filled with fun and excitement,” said Jane Blay. ” We work hard to make sure we have a camp that students will want to come back to year after year, and then when the age out, you may see their younger siblings. These students are so much fun to work with because they all come at it with different visions of the same project.”
This year, the real focus was on the late, great artist, Robert Indiana, who passed away in May. He was famous for his “LOVE” artwork, and this year, the FA art campers made their own “LOVE” piece (see picrture). In addition, Ms. Blay and Ms. Ladd worked with kids making pressed plates (with clay), stenciling bags, making tie-dye t-shirts, and creating planters out of used plastic containers.
All in all, it has been a great week. For pictures of 2018 FA Art Camp, go to: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmnkYoNq. Photos will be updated as the week goes on. More camps are happening all summer long.
