Castle of the Arts CAMP EXHIBIT 2021
Take a scroll through the gallery below for a sneak peek into the creation of the Castle of the Arts: Constructed by me, Miss Robin and decorated by KIDS! I hope to have the construction photos of the Castle itself ready for you soon:) AND ... I've got some other cool plans for you to see art students' art too this spring;)
Okay, so I've wanted to create some artwork for this super cool festival for two years now... and finally I CAN! But it's rather ambitious and so I'm going to need help. What am I doing?
A CASTLE of the Arts!
Four towers will represent individually, INNOVATION, FUNCTIONALITY, LITERARY and EXPRESSION. I plan to make in interactive for both adults and children and everyone in between! Cardboard, styro-foam, reclaimed wallpaper, carpet tube rolls, spools, deck railings, cat toys, brushes, pencils, feathers, costumes, and painting and probably a LOT of TAPE!! Construction has begun and the Castle is taking shape quickly. It will be serve as an outdoor mini venue for kids and big kids to learn more about how the Arts have shaped our civilizations.
It was on display from July 17 - August 28th in downtown Okotoks!
It DID move three times!
It WAS enjoyed... and it received a Wishing Well upgrade
It was under siege near the end...and it WAS rescued!
Now WATCH for the UNFOLDING of how the Castle of the Arts CAME to be through a multitude of...
Still shots - Videos - Kids & Teens Helping - Kids & Teens Decorating...and it even found a fourth, temporary home in September!
