Community Arts Center’s Summer Fellows Program creates a deep connection between teaching artists and the summer programming at CAC through the new exhibition, Metamorphosis, which is the theme of this year’s summer camp. Fellows will exhibit their own work in the gallery and facilitate collaborative projects with children ages 4-11 who are enrolled in Community Arts Center’s Summer Spree Art Camp. Some of the collaborative work done with campers will be added to the exhibition as the summer progresses. A gallery talk for families will also be scheduled during the time fellow is on site for Summer Spree Art Camp.
Community Arts Center Executive Director, Paul Downie, said, “We are thrilled to welcome two very talented teaching artists, Jessica Eldredge and Carol Gannon this summer for a rich exhibition that will showcase their personal studio practices as well as collaborative work with the campers. We believe making connections between exhibitions and children’s programming provides unique learning opportunities and a rich, dynamic experience for the viewer.”
