20170615_192936We started Art Camp this year with 5-7 year olds painting the “Still Life with Apple and a Pear” by Paul Cezanne from 1888-90.  They did a fine job.  These kids are learning about different styles of art and artists as well as learning about color mixing.  Great!  Can’t wait to see their Monet today…
