Each summer, the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center provides camps for children and adolescents with disabilities and their peers. In 2008, students in the Camp Shriver Transitions and Sports Camp participated in art workshops to learn how to express themselves using color. Outreach art educators from the Frist Center for the Visual Arts helped the campers learn to mix colors and to understand color theory. The final week of the lessons included a trip to the Frist Center, after which each camper created a large, abstract color expression on canvas. These are the paintings are on view in this exhibit.

Co-sponsored by the The Frist Center for the Visual Arts.
