The Boston College Church in the 21st Century Center is offering a weeklong virtual summer camp for children that is inspired by the book Drawing God.

The Drawing God Virtual Camp features an all-star list of creative artists, artisans, and performers who "use their God-given talents to make the world a better place," according to C21 Center Director Karen Kiefer. Through fun, creative, hands-on activities, they will teach campers on how to make their own mark in the world. The sessions will be offered via Zoom from 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET from July 13-17. The sessions will be recorded to allow for flexibility for those who cannot tune in live.

The instructors for the camp are:

Mike Debus, performance painter

Capuchin Franciscan Brother Andrew Corriente, winner of ABC’s “The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition”

Virginia Fitzgerald, a mixed media artist whose Fairyland Project has inspired children to make their own fairies.

Bren Bataclan, who unleashed a kindness campaign through his Smile art project

Kathy De Wit, illustrator and artist

Sean Bryan, former gymnast and “American Ninja Warrior” competitor known as the Papal Ninja

Drawing God (Paraclete Press), written by Kiefer and illustrated by De Wit, is about a young girl whose creative drawings of God inspire her classmates.

The Drawing God Virtual Camp is free. The only cost is for the required book purchase. Visit the Drawing God Virtual Camp site for registration and more information.
