Summer Arts Academy

Rachel has just experienced three weeks of studying the Arts. The school district puts on a Summer Arts Academy which is a fabulous program! She chose photography as her area of focus. She was able to spend three weeks with a photography teacher, learning all about this area. She got to work in a dark room and on a computer with digital softward. The last day, we were invited to come and see her pictures and have her teach us all about the dark room and what she had learned.

The amazing thing about this program is that the students also got to rotate through all the other arts which included: ceramics, 2-D art, vocal, instrumental, drama and dance.
Here is Rachel with two of her pictures that she was displaying.
Rachel and her great photography teacher - Mr. Webb. He really inspired a love of photography in Rachel!

Here is Rachel performing her dance that she learned. She is a really good dancer!

Cute ending pose!
We are so glad that Rachel had this fabulous experience! She is a better person for attending!
