About this Event

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

Led by songwriter-poet Beth Wood and teaching artist Judy Fuentes, campers will investigate animals and nature through sounds and color. Participants will explore storytelling and self-expression through art, creative writing, and music.

How does sound inspire imagery? How does imagery inspire sound? What do our emotions sound and look like? We will create stories, melodies, songs and poems, and we will use colors, forms and words to create book arts, rain sticks, and a unique talisman/power animal.

Each day includes immersion into both visual arts and creative writing, time for reflection, and lunch. Our mission is to have fun with many forms of creative expression through awareness, discovery, and play!
