Bead It! Camp

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Local boys and girls were having fun and making art at the Alexandria Museum of Art.

The Bead It! Camp introduced kids to bead mosaics.

Campers learned how to create larger images out of smaller shapes. Camp directors say it improves critical skills that can help kids later in life.  

"It really helps them to push those thinking skills, those problem solving skills. I think a lot of people don't realize, even without integrating it into academics, which is great, but even just doing an art project really helps them with their problem solving skills especially if you don't give them all the answers," said Cindy Blair.

The Bead It! Camp is one of many educational programs offered by the museum.
