Ok! So we heard ya loud and clear! You want more camps!
decided to partner with the awesome Bowling Green State University and
hold another Art Scouts camp. If you are like me and need college
credit to renew your license for teaching, then this is the place to
go. Not only will you be with some crazy art teachers, awesome
facilities, good food and great art sessions, but you can also earn
college credit. That’s right, I said college credit. The Tennessee camp
at this time does not have college credit available.
The 2-day workshop is $250 and includes 4 different Art Scout leaders! Cassie Stephens your fiber arts queen, Ginger Pacer the clay guru, Jennifer Alvarado your printmaking guide, and me, Laura Lohmann,the
painting and painted paper pro. There will be break out sessions for
intense hands on learning so you’ll feel confident in teaching these
arts to your students. Plus, we will have fun, cooperative group
projects created throughout the camp.
College credit is available at an additional cost thru Bowling Green State University. Cost for 1 Credit hour is $405 (Undergraduate) & $450 (Graduate) This can be done by contacting BGSU here- Guest Student

Spring is here! Well at least in my art room. You know I am a huge nature lover. I mean I LOVE flowers, trees and landscapes, etc. I thought, why not introduce my primary students to
Van Gogh’s Flowering Trees.
Single Blooming Peach Tree
The first project, created by my creative 2nd grade artists, was inspired by the Peach trees that Vincent had seen in a local orchard. He loved the petals that floated in the air. My students created beautiful mixed media peach trees.
Materials used in these paintings were tempera paints and oil pastels. The elements and principles of art focused on in this project are: tints, shades, texture, color and line, just to name a few.
Blooming Almond Branches
This second project was created by my 1st grade students using mixed materials of tempera paints and oil pastels. This was such a simple project yet when displayed on darker paper they really are striking.
