Young artists learn about logos at Grove Presbyterian Church's art camp

DANVILLE — Twenty-five youngsters attending the annual arts camp at Grove Presbyterian Church stretched their imaginations to create personalized logos.

Their drawing with colored pencils Monday followed the presentation by guest artist Caitlin Latshaw, video editor with CCN.

She urged the children to create logos based on their interests. “Look at colors,” she said of warm colors such as orange, yellow and red and cool colors, including blue and green, and shapes, she said.

“Logos are everywhere. Look at clothing,” she said, showing logos for Superman, the Disney Channel, Nike and Target.

She demonstrated how she used her name and incorporated what she likes such as cats, lavender and music in her design. “You can use your first, your last name or your nickname,” the Danville resident and video editor of two years said.

Luke Huron, 7, used an ocean and waves with the letters of his first name. Next to him Jack Gibson, also 7, chose the letters of his first name for his logo.

Madison Earnest, 8, said she drew a human that was half-fish. Her twin sister Molly was working on a logo with her first name showing a swimming pool ladder.

Olivia Huron, 11, added a basketball, a beach, flowers and a lollipop to the letters of her first name.

The camp, in its sixth year for children completing first through seventh grades, continues this week, according to Lynn Pabst, director of Christian education at the church.

Other guest artists will include Todd Jeffreys of Stoneware, Rand Whipple of Box of Light doing pantomime and a tour of the church organ by Joy Christian.
