When we open ourselves to art, we open ourselves to the world – to beauty, craft, to different cultures, to pain and pleasure, expression and emotion.

Join the Gibbes Museum of Art for a great summer of creative fun at our 2010 Summer Art Camp. Work with practicing artists and museum teachers, explore the museum’s galleries for inspiration, and create your own fantastic artwork! This summer, artists can choose from three themes: In the Forest, Go Global, and Art Story. Classes will be held across from the museum at the Circular Congregational Church. Campers will meet at the Gibbes each morning.

Teachers are Mrs. Sally Collins and Mrs. Martha Criscuolo. Mrs. Collins holds a Commercial Art Degree, Bachelor of Social Science Degree, and Master in Teaching (MIT) Degree. She has previously taught Art, English, and 4th grade at the First Baptist School in Mt. Pleasant as well as 1st and 3rd grade at Midland Park Elementary in Charleston County. Most recently, Mrs. Collins teaches Art at Trident Academy in Mt. Pleasant. Mrs. Criscuolo holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree and has completed graduate work toward a Masters in Art Education. She was an Art teacher in New Haven, CT and currently serves as a Gibbes Museum of Art Museum Educator and Teaching Artist. We are happy to have these wonderful teachers lead our summer camp!
