Antelope Valley Health Start art program held

Staff Reports

Parents of art students and the community are invited to see the results of a three-week art program at the Antelope Valley school tomorrow.

The Antelope Valley Healthy Start program held its first Summer Art Program and was so successful, says director Bonnie Travers, that she wants to do it again.

“We plan on doing it again next year,” Travers said, “since the response was so good.”

From 28 to 35 students attended the daily sessions, held in the 3rd grade classroom at AES, ranging in age from 5 to 16.

“It was better than I even imagined,” she said.

Teacher Chris Baker, an artist from Walker, taught students all types of media, including crayon, wire art, clay, torn paper art and watercolor painting.

The goal of the program was to expose children to art and let them develop their creativity as well as introduce them to different media.

The program was funded in part by the Mono County Arts Council with support from the Town of Mammoth Lakes and Mono County.

The display tomorrow will be held at the end of class, at 11:30 a.m. A potluck luncheon is planned. Everyone is invited.
