We are currently looking for someone(possibly a school Art teacher) to head up our Art Barn. A beautiful, spacious 200 year old barn is centrally located amongst Med-O-Lark’s many art studios. In here, adult instructors teach children techniques and styles in painting, drawing, sketching, cartooning, anime, graffiti and more. Campers choose from a wide variety of media with which to create. These include, oil, pastel, watercolor, pen and ink charcoal.
