Masterpiece Project

The Art Department at Wheaton College presents Masterpiece Project Summer Camp, a camp for students entering 9th-12th grades. The camp will be held from June 23-29 at Wheaton College. Masterpiece is unique in its emphasis on the creative process in addition to skill building, all in a non-competitive environment. Participants will concentrate primarily on one of the following interest areas: drama, music, visual arts, or writing. All of our instructors are educated and skilled artists working professionally in their fields. Each has a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and incorporates their faith experience in their studio classes. Students will also be able to explore other media through additional workshops and special presentations during the week. Dialogue with adult Christian artists and fellow students is actively encouraged to enhance our communal understanding of the value of God’s gifts to His children. Each student will be encouraged to share their creative work with the camp… Saturday, June 22, 2019, 6:00 AM – Saturday, June 29, 2019, 11:00 PM. Wheaton College.
