Melanie Vogel, Director of Children’s Summer Art Camp

“The arts develop the whole individual and research has shown that this contributes to higher test scores as well as creative problem solving,” says Melanie Vogel, who has been Director of Art Camp for 9 years. She also teaches art at the Anaheim Hills campus of Fairmont Private Schools. Previously, she taught in the Fullerton School District’s Arts for All the Kids Program, as well as in art education at CSUF. Melanie earned a BA in Art from Chapman University.

“I enjoy the excitement and creativity of the children in Art Camp, and the opportunity to work with a dedicated and artistically gifted staff, Melanie says. “Art campers are happy to be in an art program in a university setting that allows them to experience new mediums and methods. It gives them a rich and rewarding experience which they might not receive in their regular school setting.”
