This will be the Delphos Area Art Guild’s first summer to provide instruction in a variety of expressive and artistic mediums and techniques. DAAG believes creative expression is an integral part of intellectual growth. DAAG youth and teen programs encourage curiosity, problem solving, independence and self-confidence.
Each camp session is four days — Monday through Thursday — beginning June 17 and instructed by experienced instructors with one or more volunteers to assist.
