Making the World More Beautiful

On Monday, campers expressed their creative and artistic sides through the medium of incredibly messy pastel crayons. Visual artists Barb Davis and her daughter Liz provided the drawing utensils, aprons, and large sheets of white paper.

The campers, whose project was to draw a self portrait, provided the genius. Each drawing was unique unto the artists’ skills, as well as appearance. While some campers attempted to draw pictures resembling themselves, others drew pictures of locations and things that they liked.

From hotdogs and rainbows to places and faces, each picture stood out from the rest. After all the beautiful portraits were completed, they were all posted for display on the wall in the Congress Lounge. Campers did not leave empty handed, though. The wide variety of pastel colors left on the children’s clothes and hands was a reminder of all the hard work that was put into these pictures.
