Paper Source creates Kids Art Camp
Kids Art Camps continues to support art education
Paper Source, curator of creative inspiration for over three decades, creates Kids Art Camp day where it encourages kids to be creative through art. The program can be used throughout the world to get kids to use various crafting techniques and tools to design something really cool.
“We are excited to bring Kids Art Camp to our communities, inspiring younger generations to do something creative every day,” says Jenica Myszkowski, Chief Operating Officer. “As a mom, I am delighted that children will be creatively engaged, learn new skills and become makers of their own personal keepsakes.”
Some of the items kids can create include slime, watercolors, stickers, masterpiece paintings, collage cards, story book, origami, hot air balloon and marbles. These are great ways for kids to express themselves through the art they’re creating.
As schools cut funding for the arts, it’s important now more than ever for kids to participate in workshops and classes supporting the arts. Many don’t realize how art education affects children.
“Arts education aids students in skills needed in the workplace: flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate, the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative, and to strive for excellence,” says Joseph M. Calahan, Director of Cooperate Communications, Xerox Corporation.
