The 10 students in Betsy Peterson’s Art 101 Camp completed their course of study Friday with an exhibition of the works they created in their week-long class.
Refreshments were served in the gallery of Betsy Peterson Designs, and several dozen proud parents, grandparents and well wishers chatted over the fruit tray and the cheese and crackers after making the round of the art.
The walls and floors were filled with paintings, block prints, sculptures and other curious designs produced by the young artists aged 5 to 12.
Popsicle-stick sculptures of barns and other structures rose in the center of the gallery, and block prints hung on the walls, featuring designs such as strawberries, squirrels, eyeballs and other natural images.
A second class will be offered starting July 5. For more information, stop into Betsy Peterson Designs gallery at 1121 Second St. in downtown Perry, or email email@example.com.
