An art journal is a visual diary used to record your thoughts, memories, and emotions. During this camp students will be creating their own visual art journal as they explore collage art and create imagery inspired by stories. They will also create their own story! Drawings, paintings, photographs and text will be combined as students use visual literacy to express themselves in a variety of media.
Arts Center’s summer camps follow stringent safety guidelines. Each camp has reduced capacities, allowing for social distancing. In addition, face masks are required for all campers and staff.
Half-day campers should bring a water bottle and snack. Visual art campers should wear old clothing and/or bring a smock to protect their clothes. Theatre campers should bring a lunch.
Curbside drop-off and pick up will be in effect for all camps.
Our current health climate is ever-changing and these policies may be evaluated per local and state ordinances.
Debi West doesn’t just teach art, she teaches children, and this is the highlight of her life and her profession. Teaching students to visually tell their stories through the mastery of the art elements, principles and media is beyond exciting, and as she steps back and watches them explore, discover, dream and succeed she is reminded daily why she loves her chosen profession so much.
Debi has taught children K-12 for the past 24 years in Gwinnett County, Georgia. She has spent her career being a life-long learner earning her BFA in studio art from USC, and receiving her Masters, Specialist and Ph.D (ABD) in art education from UGA.
