About this event

This camp will take place outdoors at the Sisters Art Works Building, located at 204 W. Adams Avenue in Sisters.

The Nature of Expression: A Creativity Camp exploring art, music, creative writing and nature. Led by songwriter-poet Beth Wood and teaching artist Judy Fuentes. Campers will investigate animals and nature through sounds and color. They will also explore storytelling and self-expression through art, creative writing, and music. How does sound inspire imagery? How does imagery inspire sound? What do emotions sound and look like? Campers will create stories, melodies, songs and poems, and use colors, forms and words to create book art, rain sticks, and a unique talisman/power animal. Each day includes immersion into both visual arts and creative writing as well as time for reflection and making new friends. The goal is to have fun with many forms of creative expression through awareness, discovery, and play!
