Want to see Art Colony Camp in action?

We are so please to shared this video created by Michelle Shavnya. Michelle has been a camp counselor at the Museum for three years and wanted to share the experience with others. She is a middle school student and in her spare time enjoys making videos about various subjects, which inspired her to make an informational video about the Museum’s Art Colony Camp. This is the first film she has shared with the public.
