Pushkin Crocker, VisArts Summer Camper, with his ceramic artwork “Eye of the Unfinished Pyramid
What Pushkin loves about VisArts Camp? Painting, drawing, woodworking and making friends. It’s all fun!
When asked about his favorite class, Pushkin replied “painting, drawing, woodworking, glass, and scrapbooking…….it’s all fun”.
Pushkin enjoyed VisArts camp so much last year, he asked his Mom if he could go again this summer. He admitted to being a bit scared and nervous the first year as he didn’t know any other kids. Jumping right in working with the woodworking tools helped him adjust. This year Pushkin was less nervous and actually knew a few other kids from school who were also attending. He said it’s really fun being with the teachers and other kids, doing art, taking it home, hanging it up and looking at it over the years and thinking “I made that at VisArts camp”.
Pushkin wants a friend of his to join him at camp next time and plans to show him the wooden shark, fused glass mosaic snake and clay dragon he made this year to convince him. Undoubtedly, it will!
