Lisa Vitkus has a passion for teaching children. She has been teaching with KidzArt for more than five years and has taught middle school students for three years. This summer she spent her time teaching 6- to 12-year-olds about the arts and watching them express their creativity.
She taught the Cirque de Arts Camp from Monday, Aug. 19, to Thursday Aug. 22 at the Champlin Ice Forum.
All of the art the kids created throughout the week had a circus theme. They made a picture of an elephant under the big top, colored a picture of a motorcyclist jumping through a hoop, and sculpted a seal from clay with a tin foil base.
