BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Morgan Arts Council announces its second round of summer arts camps with visual arts for younger children and video plus visual arts for teens.

Two sessions of a weeklong summer camp begin on Monday, July 19, and are held at the Ice House, corner of Independence and Mercer streets, in downtown Berkeley Springs.

Animal Art Safari guides 6- to 9-year olds on an exploration of how animals influence art. Students will use wool fiber, clay, recycled materials, natural dyes and the water of Berkeley Springs as well as have fun with traditional stories and camp games. Potter Lynn Lavin will teach the class.

Anthony Bellissimo, an award-winning young videographer, continues his film work with local kids in the other weeklong camp that also adds visual arts activities. Youth ages 9 to 17 can enroll in the Summer Arts and Film Studio where the them is "see what you're looking at." Campers are encouraged to draw, paint and video in ways they never before considered and then to assemble collages from their different work.
