The Ormond Memorial Art Museum's Curator of Education and Outreach Kristin Heron created their first-ever camp based soley on the importance of imagination.
Rather than create the traditional art camp projects — such has paintings, macaroni art and pottery — the students of Imaginarium created Walter, an invisible triangle friend), told stories about the "Chronicles of Space Cat," and even designed a cat-themed city called "Meowtown," where whiskers would be present on every building.
I think it's safe to say the Imaginarium is no ordinary camp.
Created by the Ormond Memorial Art Museum's Curator of Education and Outreach Kristin Heron, the weeklong camp was a chance for kids to
explore different things other than traditional visual art and excerise their out-of-box thinking skills.
"They did a lot of things where they had to work together and come up with creative solutions, which relates to everything in life," Heron said. "A few were a little uncomfortable at the beginning, but at the end everyone was participating."
