Coastal Sketchbook Adventures

Grab your, pen, your paintbrush, and get outside! In this program, campers will start off the week by making their own handmade journals. The remainder of the week will be spent journeying to natural and urban places in the Greater Portland area to fill them up with art and creative writing. While taking in the beauty of Maine during summer, these campers will learn how to preserve their memories and ideas with pictures, drawings, pressings, prints, and more.
