Jan's Art Studio, located at 1819 McCreight, hosted its annual summer art camp this week.

Kids attending the camp got the chance to learn different art techniques and showcase their work in an art show at the studio. The young art students worked to create art pieces featuring a peacock, a panda bear and a tiger.

To create the peacock, the kids used different paper stock on a water colored background.

“A collage is a piece of art that you combine with different things such as fabric, paint, mosaic,” Bastrop High School art teacher and camp assistant Vicki Bonsall said.

With this method, each peacock turned out to be unique.

“I thought the kids did a wonderful job,” Bonsall added.

For the panda bear, the kids used pastels on black paper.

To create their tigers, they used pen and ink to outline it and then colored it in with watercolor pencils.

As the kids finished up their tiger pieces, Owner and Instructor Jan Zakrzewski expressed how she felt the students were doing so far.

“They are all doing marvelous and having a wonderful time,” Zakrzewski said.

Once all three of the projects were finished, an art show was held for parents and friends to come and admire the completed art pieces. The show was complete with a spot for each child's artwork to be displayed, refreshments and paper for students to autograph.
