In Any Medium, Campers’ Artistry is Well-Done

A camper delights in her clay creation: an elephant-inspired bee house. When complete, campers can place their bee houses outside their homes to enhance bee habitat.

Penn College art studios offer welcoming space for artistic expression and exploration. Here, a young camper adds finishing touches to his creation in a printmaking workshop.

For outdoor fun, Varner adds detergent to a camper’s wet felting project that incorporates wool roving.

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.
