Oakland Camp hosts annual artists’ camp

  Summer camp is not just for kids, as nearly 75 adult artists proved during the week of June 17 at the Oakland Feather River Camp in Quincy.

  Now in its 21st year, the art camp has evolved from a city of Oakland-run program to a private enterprise headed by Oakland artist Karen LeGault.

  Weeklong classes in oil and watercolor painting, fiber arts, ceramics, flamework glass, fused glasswork, paper making and mosaics offer students personalized instruction from world-class artists.

  Camaraderie is part of the draw of the camp: many students have been attending for a decade or more.

  Students camp out in tent cabins and enjoy daily classes, evening workshops, campfires and communal meals.

  A student art show Saturday, June 22, topped off the weeklong artistic immersion, providing viewers an amazing and eclectic array of artwork.
