Summer kids Art Camp
with Willow Creek Church

 "We held a Bible Art Camp on July 14 and 15, 2014 for twenty children at the LaCitadelle Art Gallery, sponsored by our community group from Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois. The purpose of the camp was to provide an art experience and instruction while connecting it with biblical principles. We had two instructors and one was an artist whose work is displayed at LaCitadelle. What a delightful experience it was to bring the children to an actual gallery and see art while they used their hands to produce it. It was indeed a delight to work with Vesna Boscovic as she was so gracious to let us hold the camp in her gallery and also to be present and assist us in any way possible."

Letting go, encouraging one another and be so willing to share your own gifts!  Isn't it a wonderful feeling to develop confidence in your own creativity and  individuality?  


Dancing with Paint™ sessions are designed to unleash personal creativity through "action" learning"- playing and learning together.  We paint in a free, fanciful manner.  The outcomes?  Some outrageous art and important life lessons about overcoming fear and having fun!

The very act of painting is courageous, fun, freeing, and deeply satisfying.  All DwP exercises build comfort and competency in painting, and they also affirm our innate creativity and individuality.  They are MESSY, so come prepared.  They enhance any kind of painting you do, regardless of media and size.  They are also perfect if you have yearned to paint, but have yet to jump in.  

Letting go, encouraging one another and be so willing to share your own gifts!  Isn't it a wonderful feeling to develop confidence in your own creativity and  individuality?
