At the Albany Museum of Art, summer camp students draw, make arts and crafts and learn about famous artists.
This week our session is called ~ID at the AMA, TM and every day they're studying a different artist and they create a rendition of that artists' work, said Crystal Morrison, the camp TMs coordinator.
The six week program is taught by certified art instructors, and has about 20 students who have a blast.
I've done painting which I really like. I TMve learned about different artists, said Leecy Davis. I TMve been able to go to the art show and see different art. It TMs really fun.
Another student, Sophia Hall, wants to be an artist one day. I just like doing art and I came here the first time and I was like, ~I can't believe I TMm here, TM she said.
But they don't just draw, they also learn.
I TMve learned about Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Leecy said.
The camp puts on two art shows every Friday for parents and friends.
