DSU Arts and Etiquette Camp recently complete its one-week session with children from grades 3-6, providing them with the opportunity to engage their hearts, minds and bodies.

While enhancing the youths’ creativity, self-discipline and self-esteem that is necessary for other areas in life, the June 24-28 camp was a hands-on art experience that educated the children in the various art forms while fostering a lifelong appreciation for the arts.

The youth also received pearls of wisdom about etiquette, as well as the proper conduct and protocol in various social situations. The week-long camp ended with an Afternoon Tea/Art Exhibit on the last day of class where each student demonstrated the lessons learned.
