Anne Rader. I grew up in Cleveland area (more Great Lakes than Midwest). I migrated to Chicago and then Minnesota in my 30’s as a result of my “day” job in IT. I have spent the better part (nay best part!) Of my adult life In Minnesota and in particular the Pine Island area.
Growing up I have always been interested in the arts and crafts and have experimented with fabric art, mixed media, sculpture, and mosaics. Very recently I discovered clay and the Clay Studio and have fallen in love. I find that I repeat the common themes of my childhood. I gravitate toward animal subjects and totems. Small wonder… at one time my son had 5 cats 3 dogs (one was the neighbors) and two rats (and er maybe a lizard) all of which I not only tolerated but encouraged.
My aspiration is to find my own voice combining both functional pottery with projects that involve totems and sculptures and more than likely it will incorporate creatures that are part of our dreams, folklore and mythology. That is where I would like to go with this.

Animal Planet Adventure in Clay
Grades 1-3; 9:30am-12:30pm; Mon-Fri; Lower Level Clay Studio; $175

This camp has been designed around a younger person’s natural fascination with the world around us, and particularly the animals we share this planet with. Its a wonderfully hands on adventure for the kids and an opportunity to challenge themselves with new ideas and problem solving skills.
We’ve got some really fun creative activities and each day we will talk about different animals and where we see them. We plan to work with the kids on projects such as animal face refrigerator magnets, scavenger hunt bowls, Finger puppet Animals, favorite animal face mugs or pinch pot bowls, and owl plaques. Depending on how much time we have, I have a number of other fun things the kids can make, and each person will have some choices in what they would like to do that fits their skills and interests. We will talk about Pet shop animals, Zoo animals, Animals in our neighborhood,Minnesota animals…

Runs with Scissors: Textile Camp
Grades 3-12; 9:30am-4pm; Mon-Fri; $235

SEWING
Sewing is a great skill & once you know the basics you can be creative & make all sorts of things! All campers will have access to their own sewing machine to create a variety of projects. Beginners will learn basics such as cutting, measuring, pressing & machine operation. They will have the option to create several projects including: a pillow case, a simple pillow, I-pad sleeve, a drawstring bag, zipper pocket case or toss bean bag. Returning campers will review the basics & select projects like a Tote bag, t-shirt quilt, binding techniques, dog/cat collar, oven mitt or a simple garment. Advanced students may also bring their own pattern/materials to work on in camp.

Angie Haviland. Let me start by saying, sewing is my stress reliever. I love to create and help others find their love of sewing. There are endless possibilities when you get comfortable around a sewing machine. I have been a family consumer science teacher with a passion for sewing since high school. I planned to be a fashion designer before becoming a teacher. I teach middle and high school students in Lake City where I teach 9 courses, two of which are sewing courses. I have taught for 16 years, three in Texas and thirteen in Lake City. I Owned a drapery workroom in Texas and a retail store when we moved back to Minnesota. Sewing is no longer an essential skill but it sure is fun to learn something new or strengthen your skill around a sewing machine. The reward of taking a two dimensional piece of cloth and turning it into a unique creation with endless possibilities makes the skill of sewing so rewarding. I look forward to working with you this summer on some great sewing projects.

Jennifer Jesseph is a poet and fiber artist in Pine Island. She’s been knitting and crocheting since the age of 10.

Whimsical, Wild & Wacky Clay Camp
Grades 4-12; 9:30am-12:30pm; Mon-Fri; Lower Level Clay Studio; $175

Join us this summer as we explore this hands on and wonderfully creative medium of clay. During camp week we will be exploring our unique selves and the world around us much like artists in the past. We plan to make Picasso Self Portrait plaques, a bird house, a house tool holder (or plaque) and Scavenger hunt bowls (with leaves and such that we find outside). These projects can be as simple or complex as the individual wishes, and will be getting help along the way. If time allows will be creating other projects with campers choice on some of them.

Tear Into It; Altered Book Art
Grades 1-3; 9:30am-12:30pm; Mon-Fri; Upper Level Bookstore; $175

“Watch out! You have to be gentle with that book!” I’m sure someone has said that to you before, right? Well in this camp you get to do things with old books that you can’t do with your story books at home. We will fold the pages, tear the pages, glue the pages, and even paint the pages of these old recycled books! We will even use some fun materials like shaving cream, leaves, and stamps to change the pages of your book.

Carly Frei LOVES creating art with old books but also loves to paint and use any other kind of materials to make art that you can imagine! She taught art for 5 years and has a passion for helping kids to create through their own inspirations. She also has her own business fictionreshaped.com where she creates Book Art from recycled books. Besides creating art she loves spending time with her family, reading, watching movies, and playing fetch with their dog and their cat who thinks he is a dog!

Some of the things we will add to our books are photographs developed by the sun, nature art prints and stamps. We will also create new fonts to add words to the pages!
