Photographs, artwork, masks, puppets and a teepee created by campers at the After School summer arts camp are currently on exhibit at the Creative Photographic Arts Center, 50 Canal St., Bates Complex, Lewiston. Through a collaborative effort between the summer arts camp and the Creative Photography, campers ages 10 and older spent two days a week at the center where they built pinhole cameras and discovered how a camera works, learned darkroom techniques and printed photographs. After deciding on group projects, they shot and developed photos and mounted them for display. Other drawings, paintings. masks and sculptures created by all the campers at the Tot Lot sites are also featured in the exhibit to run through Saturday. Open to the public, hours are 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Plans are underway for further collaborative classes this fall.
