David Rankin's Art Camps for the middle school kids at Open Doors Academy.
The whole purpose of my Art Camps is to widen the scope of understanding for middle school kids here in Cleveland who have very little actual knowledge or experience in terms of what it means to be an actual professional artist.
So my effort is to take these kids into the actual working studios, galleries, museums, and exhibitions where real artists create, exhibit, and sell artwork.
I select many of my artists from my actual artist friends, many of whom are imm the very top of their chosen field of artistic excellence. In addition... we are fortunate to live here in Cleveland with an abundance of world class museums.
