WCS Summer Enrichment Camp

Students got to create art and learn about the outdoors during a recent Warsaw Community Schools Summer Enrichment Camp. “Art in the Great Outdoors” met July 14-18 at Edgewood Middle School. The weather was perfect for the nature walks, according to longtime art teacher and Master Gardener Sherri Johnson. “The goal was to provide extended art curriculum not possible during the constraints of the school day,” she said. Some of the activities included outdoor sketching, animal drawing, pressed flower creations, ceramic nature plaque, tree, leaf and flower identification. Participants also learned about artists Claude Monet, Leonardo Da Vinci and others. The culminating activity involved each student designing and setting up their own art display, and sharing what they made and learned with parents and other guests. There were 15 students ages 6 to 11 who took part in the course. This class and others offered this summer are part of WCS and OrthoWorx initiative to offer enrichment courses to area students.
