Re: Visual Art Camp for 8 year old
I would like to very enthusiastically recommend Imagination Kids Art Camp, the brain child of long time local artist and art teacher Lucy Ames. My daughter has been attending Lucy's camp every summer for one or weeks for the last 4 summers. The program is wonderful. The group is small, taught by Lucy in her studio, and the projects are fun and sophisticated. Lucy breaks the work up so that it is manageable and keeps the pace going so that everyone is very involved, learning tons, and having a great time. At the end of the week, the kids have an art show: each time the work is so beautiful, I am amazed at what Lucy is able to teach. Cate

We highly recommend Lucy Ames' Imagination Kids summer art camp. Lucy teaches art during the school year at two Berkeley public schools and holds her camp at her home studio in El Cerrito. Our 4th grade son has enjoyed his sessions every summer for the last four years. Lucy's teaching style is friendly and approachable, yet focused on providing technical art skills and enormous freedom of expression. The camps are kept small enough for individual attention and often are based on a theme, such as world art, color, or artists' styles. Lucy is a pleasure to talk with and would be happy, I'm sure, to give you more information directly. Here's her contact info: (510) 527-4777 Miriam and Ben
