Winn Playgrounds and Recreation Board Hosts Art Camp

Last week the Winn Playground and Recreation Board hosted a very special art camp for some of the students who are eagerly waiting for the first day of school. It was not only an educational camp, but it also provided the young people an opportunity to visit with old friends and make some new ones.

Mr. Daniel Rockett and Ms. Shannon Chevallier were the art instructors for the week, and did an excellent job of teaching the youngsters about ancient Greek art and its many forms.
