I AM ART CAMP 2023
Lee Street Church engages in a week long I Am Art camp in the summer which is designed for children ages 5-12 of the Godfrey Lee Neighborhood. This year’s camp will be held during the week of June 12-16 (9:00am-2:00pm) and includes lunch and snacks.
Children are able to choose between 10 different artistic mediums and will work in their group all week to learn multiple elements of their chosen medium while working on individual and group projects. All the children will also be able to work on a personal t-shirt design and a neighborhood mural project.
On Saturday, June 17 (10:00am) there will be an Art Celebration displaying and celebrating the individual and group projects the children worked on all week at the camp.
On Sunday, June 18 (10:00am) we will have a special worship service celebrating Creativity as Mission.
The theme verse for I Am Art comes from Ephesians 2:20, “For we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” I Am Art is centered on the invitation for children to explore the art within them while embracing the truth that each can declare “I Am Art” as a masterpiece created by the Artist of all artists — the great I AM.
I Am Art camps have been held in Guatemala for more than 10 years and some of our members brought the vision here to Lee St. last summer where more than 100 children were in attendance and 50 plus volunteers served the children and their families. We partner with our friends at Athentikos
to carry out the I Am Art camp.
We are excited to build on last year’s camp and celebrate the artistry of God’s love and grace!
