ArtSkool offers summer fun, creativity

The Art Studio’s ArtSkool was the venue for students this summer with projects involving drawing and painting, darkroom photography, clay classes and paper maché for a variety of age groups.

“The summer classes are a wonderful way for tweens and teens to keep busy in a creative outlet and to get out of the house and have some fun,” Sheila Busceme, drawing and painting instructor, said.

More than a dozen students had the options of morning and afternoon sessions and one or two weeks of classes.

“The great thing about our summer classes is that families and students have multiple options in choosing their sessions,” Joe Winston, Art Studio board president and photography instructor, said. “Most of the students signed up for morning and afternoons sessions, and that gave them the opportunity to experience several different techniques and processes without being rushed. So if a student was really interested in photography, they could take extra time if they needed to finish their project before moving on to their next session.”

The classes ran Monday through Friday, July 11-22, and each week’s classes concluded with a student exhibition for family and friends.

“We already have some great ideas for next year” Busceme said. “Each year, ArtSkool gives us great ideas to build upon and an opportunity to offer more than we did the year before. We’re very fortunate to be able to offer students instruction by some of the most talented local artists around.”
