Sidwell Friends Lower School art teacher Ms. Ahmed and Sidwell Friends Middle School art teacher Ms. Eliza will offer camp through Sidwell Summer, open to campers from any school interested in creating and learning about art!

For campers in rising K-1st grade, “Adventures in Art” will feature mixed media, multi-dimensional, colorful projects sure to inspire a young artist! For campers in rising 3-5th grade, “Multicultural Art” will explore the ways in which culture and design come into conversation with each other, and allow campers to express their cultural identities through the imagining and making of art pieces.

For campers in K-2nd grade, Ms. Eliza’s art elective will involve making collages and exploring identity in an exciting and fun summer manner! From paper collages to nature collages to mixed media collages, the students will express and share, through color and composition, their views of themselves!
