Over Spring Break, Warren County grade school students took the opportunity to learn about three-dimensional art. Campers learned techniques for sculpting with clay, wire, foam, plastic, and paper. The children found inspiration in the new sculptures on the WKU campus and famous sculptors like Henry Moore, Dale Chihuly, and Elizabeth Berrien. Campers were encouraged to keep their artwork and display it at home.
