How do you make an already successful Summer Camp Program even better? “MORE is better” according to Todd Still, Director of Youth Education at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. This year the camp continues to offer full day options for the youngest campers, a mural camp, programs for teens as well as a separate Arts in Motion Camp. “We’re trying to offer the breadth of programs that parents are looking for” says Mr. Still.
In order to reflect the quality of instruction that happens each week, with certified art instructors in most of the classrooms, this is the 2nd year, DFAC is referring to their summer youth offerings as the Summer Art Academy. “Though we still refer to each week as a camp, the term Academy better reflects how our offerings differ from many camps in the area” said Mr. Still.
George Ann Bissett, the Executive Director of DFAC feels the camps are growing because of the positive experience the children are having. “Studies show” she notes “that children who study art, end up doing better in ALL of their studies, so that makes our programs pretty popular with parents too!”
