Kids build art skills, confidence at paint camp

GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--North Dakota Museum of Art is hosting a Drawn to Paint summer camp this week.

This is just one of 11 camps that they are hosting through the summer for kids and teens.

The museum tells us that the demand for camps that focus on the arts has been growing over the years and they've been happy to keep adding more.

Organizers tell us that these camps are important not only for kids to learn about art and build those skills, but it helps them build confidence in themselves and teaches them how to work well with others, but ultimately they want the kids to have fun.

“That's really important that they're obviously learning about artistic skills and stuff but that they're building confidence in knowing more about art and knowing more about what they're interested in,” said Camp Instructor, Mollie Douthit.

"Most kids like being creative and doing their own thing and they don't like being bossed around, so I think this would be really good for them,” said Camper, Thea Tan.
