Many youngsters have fought off the summertime lethargy this year by exercising their creativity. Both the Bay School Community Arts Center in Mathews and Gloucester Arts on Main have offered many “kid-friendly” classes. Last month, Arts on Main hosted a summer Kids Art Camp with sponsorship from Gloucester Parks and Recreation and the Cook Foundation. The theme was “Faces,” and activities included crafting faces from clay and papier-mache.

Each week the class enjoyed a field trip to Richmond to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The class was taught by Cook Foundation vice president Carolyn Dudley who is an artist and has a degree in art therapy. Photo by Jennie Diggs
