Creative spirits soared this week at Penn College’s Creative Art Camp, held Monday through Thursday, in the Bush Campus Center art studios. About 30 campers, entering fourth through seventh grades, explored a wide range of media and crafted objects from clay bee houses to felted bowls and animals. The day camp, coordinated by Penny Griffin Lutz, director of The Gallery at Penn College, featured three local artists/art educators as camp instructors: Deborah L. Stabley, adjunct art faculty, Penn College; Andrea McDonough Varner, art educator, Williamsport Area High School; and Holley Fuller, a 2018 art education graduate of Lycoming College.
