Summer Camp Student Art Show July 31-Aug. 1 at Renee Foosaner Education Center

07/18/2014

MELBOURNE, FLA. — The Renee Foosaner Education Center will host its 2nd annual summer camp student art show from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 31, and Friday, Aug. 1, in the Ruth Cote Clemente Wing of the Renee Foosaner Education Center at Florida Institute of Technology’s Foosaner Art Museum.

The exhibition will feature art projects created by students during the museum’s summer camp program, “The Art of Being A Kid.”

Thursday’s showing is for family and friends of campers only.

Friday’s exhibition is open to the public and will be held in conjunction with First Friday in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne. Entertainment will include a photo booth by Cosmic Café and light refreshments. Admission is free both nights.

This year’s summer camp theme tapped into the unfettered, adventurous, creative spirit that kids naturally possess. Morning camp themes such as “Play,” “Grow,” “Imagine,” and “Explore” spoke to the essence of being a kid. Afternoon campers focused on media-specific classes, including drawing, painting, 3-D art and printmaking.

Summer campers were asked at the end of each week to select a project they felt represented themselves as artists for inclusion in the art show.
