Tomorrow, Saturday, June 1st, we play host to an open-house pop-up exhibit of kids’ art from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Artist and teacher Camille Zulpo’s 23 students have transformed our front lobby and conference rooms into a colorful display of vibrant creativity. The young local artists, who range in age from second to seventh grade, are students in Camille’s KIDS’ ART program, which she runs from her home studio in Point Richmond.
Camille has been an educator, mentor and business owner in California for decades, including twenty years as a beloved teacher of second and third grade students at Crestmont School in Richmond. Since retiring from Crestmont, Camille’s KIDS’ ART program has taught children to explore different mediums and enjoy the creative process.
The curriculum focused on arts activities that are conducive to child development, involving critical thinking, problem solving, and hand-brain coordination. Camille’s approach fosters flexibility and teaches kids how to tap into their artistic natures, throw caution into the wind, and to resist the perfectionist trap in exchange for the pure pleasure of making art.
Mediums on display include painting, clay, sculpture, paper mache and cray-pas. Stop by and say hello!
