Children’s Art Camp ends with Art Show for all

Last event for ely Greenstone’s Art Camp is the art show at Miners Dry HOuse in the Ely Arts & Heritage Center where students display all the art projects they have been working on for three days. Some projects were paper bowls, instructed by Nicole Selmer who also works at the Forest Service and also is a paper maker. She brought her vats and pulp and taught the kids how to make paper bowls. They made strips of pulp around a balloon and can pop it later. When the paper dries they have a bowl. Wind chimes, watercolor painting, dot art dealing with pointillism, tile art, beading, torn paper with a poem about nature, a bird feeder out of popsicle sticks, all kinds of drawing and stone carving and lots of fun. The 54 students ages 7 to 12 this year enjoyed the big highlight at the end of the three days, the art show where they stood behind their work while parents, grandparents and neighbors come and each child explains their art and they take their treasures home.
