Artists in the Spotlight - Mary Blair

This week our spotlight is on native Oklahoman, Mary Blair. Blair was an illustrator, animator, and designer for Walt Disney in the 1940's and 50's, working on such films as Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Alice and Wonderland. Just like Blair's work, our week will be full of color, movement, and storytelling!

In each of our four day summer camps, we will explore a different artist in depth, creating works inspired by their medium, subject matter, philosophy, and life. Each camp will include a combination of two dimensional and three dimensional projects, and will be divided into a 6-10 year old age group and an 11-14 year old group.
