Meet the Artists:
Merideth Ferrell – Silk Painting
Merideth Ferrell has been part of the All About Art Summer Camp since it began. This summer she will teach students how to create colorful designs and images on silk. Students will leave with an original silk painting they can be proud of for years to come.
Will Paradis – 3D Painting
Elmira artist Will Paradis will teach students to experience paint like they never have before, in the third dimension. Students will use new mediums and found objects to create unique, textured, and one of a kind works of art.
