 Organic tree collages, bird houses, Recycled box animals, Lego sculptures, hand stamped tea cups and abstract paintings are just some of the art work that you will discover at the Camp Bear Wallow art celebration on Friday, July 14, at the Sedona Creative Life Center In the Art Cabin between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

The camp children will demonstrate their favorite art process; from sculpting, to building, to painting, or creating. This is a public exhibition of their work with refreshments inviting the whole community. This is the last event of the Camp Bear Wallow: The Art Camp for Kids!, directed by Nancy Robb Dunst, which ran for four weeks, each week teaching various methods and techniques of creating art to over 30 local children.

The mission of this camp is to inspire and encourage children to explore, create and invent using artist's tools and the artist's eye in the hopes of developing a joyful well rounded creative young adult who will give back to the community. The goals of the camp are to develop Self Tools (self esteem, confidence, problem solving, curiosity), Art Tools (to promote the Arizona Art Standards), Play Tools (to develop playfulness and persistence, experimentation, inventiveness), and to give access to the arts to all children of different economic situations.

Camp Bear Wallow has been in existence for 14 years and Guest artists this year were Maleita Wise (collage), Tyler Barrett (mechanical puzzles), Joella Jean Mahoney (abstract painting) Lori Laurie (Legos) and Barbara Brown (Sculpture). The camp Is directed by Nancy Ms. Dunst, the Arts education Coordinator for the City of Sedona. She has been a professional artist for over 30 years, and was the first recipient of the "Individual" Mayors Arts Award. She has taught art at Arizona State University, Western International University, Coconino Community College, and the Sedona Art Center. She is in numerous art collections (Sky Harbor Airport, Wells Fargo Bank, Arizona Public Service) and has been a long term (studio on site) artist-in-residence at Red Rock High School for 2 ½ years, The Madison School District for 2 years; an Artist-In Residence at De Miguel Elementary School in Flagstaff, and Brewer School for six months.

This program would not be possible without the generous co-sponsoring by the Sedona Arts Festival, Gardens for Humanity, The Sedona Visual Artist Coalition, the Sedona Creative Life Center and various small businesses in town. For more information on this celebration call Nancy at 282-0776.

I would greatly appreciate being contacted by Tyler Barrett to discuss how he mastered his approach to the relaying solutions of the carbons and coils in the step by step c.o. network puzzle.

I'm presently stymied by the vintage "dimension 2000" which puzzled hundreds of thousands when it first appeared in the late 1980's.

I believe He would be able to walk me through the audix link which is, as of right now, full. Can you assist in having him contact me or get me His contact information?

If He's given the above information I'm positive he'll be quite pleased, excited, and anxious to help me personally!

Thanks so much,
David Scola
