Here is a message from Sharon about her art camp in Montana:

“Want a family get-away that includes some art?

Are your children gifted in the Arts and want high caliber training by master professional Christian artists?  VISUAL MANNA STILL HAS OPENINGS.

Visual Manna Art Camp 2009

Visual Manna Art Camp will be held July 20-24 2009 in the town of
Salem, MO at the Oak Grove Baptist Church  (the last day will be at a
Montauk location).  We will be having new guest artists and
introducing new mediums for camp this year.  Time of the camp is 9:00
to 3:00.    Cost is $30.00 per student.  If there are more than one
child in a family, cost is $25.00 for the second family member and
$20.00 for the third.  Children must be at least 9 years of age to
attend. Adults are also welcome to attend, as the master presenters at
the camp do not give lessons.  To see them create their art and
observe their technique is very educational. Students will come away
with at least one finished design every day.  We have strict behavior
guidelines.  Upon registration you will receive a sheet with pertinent
information.

Here is the tentative schedule.
Monday we will have Andrew Layton, professional graphic artist, come
and share his pictures and techniques with the students.  We will
focus on drawing with charcoal and calligraphy.

Tuesday we will have Michael Helm, one of the artists credited with
Tony the Tiger, some of the Budweiser lizards and frogs and a vast
array of artwork including several of the Visual Manna book covers
teaches painting on canvas.

Wednesday we will have David Plank, master bird artist, teaches us
watercolor in the wet brush technique. We will focus on watercolor and
do several pictures using different techniques.

Thursday we will do sculpture and computer art.  The city of St. James
is having a bicycle competition. They give you an old bicycle to paint
similar to the cows in art done in Chicago.  Students will paint a bicycle with a
certain theme.  We will enter them in the competition where you can
win prizes up to $300.00 and they will be displayed.
Cost for this day is $30.00 for all students doing a bicycle.
We also will do alternative sculptures and three dimensional art.

Friday we will go out to Montauk State Park and do a wildlife art day.
We will learn photography from a professional and draw, photograph,
paint and sculpt animals from real life.

Master artist Edie Gabel teaches how to do dry brush watercolor and
gives an inspirational presentation on her many years as a master
artist and how God has led her.  We will have several new
presentations this year too!!!   Visual Manna, P.O. Box 553, Salem, MO
