Cool Camp Art

Class3Alongside sports, boating, swimming and wilderness trips, Pok-O-MacCready Camps is quite the artistic place.

There’s music, drama, drawing and painting, and two popular fixtures:  Crafts and Pottery.  Both of these artistic pursuits run at least four daily classes and the campers not only turn out cool projects; they love doing it in a cool place…

POTTERY:  “It’s the chillest class at Pok-O” says 16-year-old Nathan.  “I’ve been taking pottery for three years and have made pots, mugs, and plates with designs.  It’s cold, and it’s nice!”

Melissa Vedrin, in her second year on staff, is the latest in a line of talented potters to teach this unique camp course.  “She lets us make whatever we want and she’s helpful, and it’s very relaxing,” reviews Elsa.  Adds Max:  “It’s fun because it’s cold, you listen to good music and you make stuff!”

The pottery barn features a work table, clay wheel, and indoorCampArt07 and outdoor kilns.  “It’s very creative and very fun,: says Alayna, who has made pinch pots and plates.  “What I like about it,” concludes Tess, is that it’s not too hard; not too easy.  And just by making things, I’ve gotten better.”

CRAFTS:  What would summer camp be without a crafts program.  And, yes, the capers have constructed dozens of lanyards this year, but that’s not all. “You can practically do whatever you want,” says Elrick.

“We’ve made plenty of cool stuff,” reports Paris of a class that has seen campers work on both group and individual projects.  Specialist instructor Jessica Bonassera is as satisfied as the students:  “I really enjoy the class and all of my wonderful children.
