Creator spotlight! Benjamin has been painting minis for about two years. He says "the key with painting miniatures is to use contrast in order to emphasize details. The details on them can be very small-all of these but the first sword one are around 1.5 inches tall- and details like eyes can be as small as 1 millimeter. By painting recessed areas darker (shading) and exposed areas lighter (highlighting) it makes the miniature 'pop' and look very good." Thank you for sharing your work, Benjamin!

Check out this piece of art created by Haven! One of the highlights of her artist's statement is the story behind the image. This dog was a service dog in California and was taken away after it became illegal to own a pitbull in the part of the city where the owner resided. Haven used her art to highlight a social justice platform she feels passionate about. Thank you for sharing your work and your passion Haven!

Chat Melissa up about travel, spending time outside, and volunteering!

This is his first attempt at package redesign- inspired by a video he watched. He chose to do a retro upgrade of the plain old boring Band-aid box using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.

Bump, Set, Spike! ...or something like that. Students and staff participated in a volleyball game at Fall Celebration. True to EOC style, modifications were made to the game.

As part of her senior project, Ahna led breakout session "Take a Likin' to Lichen" at Fall Celebration. Participants learned that lichen is an indicator species- one which identifies the conditions of an area. Our camp had lots of lichen- which means the air and enviromental quality is good there. One might see less lichen in urban areas due to pollution. Thank you Ahna!
