'Till Next Summer!

Summer Art and Clay Campers had a sweet goodbye last Friday at our end of camp party! Campers from all weeks came together to view the completed Lets' get Artsy: 2017 Summer Camp Exhibition and indulge in sweet treats.

The final week of Art Camp was "Aaahh!! Real Monsters," which gave campers the opportunity to show off their own monster creations. Summer Clay Camp finished off with "Animal Crackers!"

Thank you to everyone who helped make Summer Art and Clay Camp successful! See you in 2018, Campers!

Ocean Commotion!

Week 9 of Summer Art Camp brought creatures of the ocean to the Morean Arts Center! Campers learned about ocean wildlife and the need to preserve and care for the habitats that house the unique underwater life surrounding the Tampa Bay Area.

Using paper, sponges, cotton balls, netting, shells, string and other materials, campers created ocean life of their own imagination. Campers made their favorite fish, coral reefs, sharks, jellyfish and many more creatures to make up a section of the Summer Art Camp Exhibition resembling an aquarium instead of an art gallery!

Over at the Morean Center for Clay, campers continued the construction of a larger-than-life shark puppet to be used at the 2017 First Night celebration. The shark puppet, the newest mascot of the Morean, now has teeth!
