“If you put art into the world, you will get beauty in return.” –Ashley Bryan

Let’s explore the paintings, illustrations, puppets, and stained glass of the distinguished artist, author, storyteller, and teacher, Ashley Bryan, recipient of the Farnsworth Art Museum’s 2022 Maine in America Award. We will join in the joyful celebration of the enduring power of art and the human spirit over adversity. We’ll practice the processes of art-making with bright, colorful materials such as paints, pastels, and collage and add some beauty to the world.

Jennifer Peppe’s adventures as an art educator began in 1996. She launched her teaching career from a busy art room within a colorful, urban, suburban school district. Through the decades, she expanded her skill sets and cultural experiences via study, traveling, and teaching abroad. Years of work with creative learners of all ages and abilities have strengthened her commitment to sharing art with others. She has since followed her love of art and nature and landed in midcoast Maine.

Please register each camper separately, answering the registration questions for each child. All art materials are provided.

Cost: $225; $200 members
