Linda Lyons, my wife and creative partner, and I have wanted to set up a regular art camp for some time; this will be the first of many more to come for ages 7-11. Linda concentrated on painting and drawing: plants, birds and the Alaskan coastal landscape. I had the children make animal masks and then a painting - their animal's habitat - to wear. Becky Kendall of Momentum Dance Collective worked with the students on movement relating to their critter.
Our thanks to Candace Blas and Cook Inlet Housing Authority for helping facilitate this and for using the Church of Love to do so. [Photos by Linda Infante Lyons, Tasha Pineda and Lee Post.]
