Not Your Ordinary Art Camp!

Not Your Ordinary Art Camp!

Community outreach and teacher training experiences may be the driving force behind the Old Dominion University summer art camp, but the result is hours of fun and learning.

Students from all Hampton Roads school districts, grades 1-8, enjoyed three weeks of painting, sculpture, drawing and ceramics via lessons designed to enhance creative and critical-thinking skills.

"This is not your ordinary summer camp," said Arlene Martin, program director and adjunct professor of art at ODU. "It is a fusion of the art education program and its students, trained in the latest teaching practices, with the children and parents in our surrounding community."

Martin, a Chesapeake public school art teacher with more than 20 years of teaching experience, supervises the camp, which is staffed by current ODU art education student Tori Farrell Martin and ODU graduate Georgeanne Fellio.

In addition to the daily classes, the campers visited ODU's Gordon Galleries, Pretlow Planetarium and Kaplan Orchid Conservatory.
