Art and the Word: Final Reception

A final reception to showcase the work of the students from the “Art and the Word: Visual Art and Literacy Summer Program” on Wednesday, July 17th, 3pm at monca.  It will feature a puppet show and exhibitions of art and writing created by the campers.  There will be awards for the students, refreshments and fun activities. Free admission.

Art and the Word Summer Camp is a 6-week program running from 6.10 - 7.17, designed by monca and funded by sponsors to guide Camp Fire children through their first summer after the fire. The camp is geared towards- but not limited to- them. The camp emphasizes literacy with an art component which includes storytelling, book-making, and puppetry/theatre. Literacy adds knowledge and skill-building, and art allows connections to be made stronger through learning in new ways.
