2018 - 3rd Annual Cape Ann Arts Alive - Music and More Day Camp - Wednesday

Day 3 - Wednesday of CAAA started with campers diving into the paint to turn the newsprint of their papier mache fish into bright colors.

Then to the chimes! Eva rehearsed our chiming pieces ('Bells of Gloucester' and ‘Hamburg') and Kristina directed our songs and dances from the previous day.

Our guest of the day was sculptor Morgan Faulds Pike.  Morgan described the process by which she built the famous Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Memorial while we looked at photographs that document her work. Then we donned our rain gear and walked in the mist past the Joan of Arc statue on Washington Street and down to the Boulevard. Morgan told us the story of each monument as we wrote and sketched.
We saw Leonard Craske's Fisherman at the Wheel,
the Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Memorial (with our own sculptor),
and Walker Hancock’s Triton (son of Poseidon) in the Betty Smith Garden at the north end of Stage Fort Park.
The foggy day was perfect for our stroll along the waterfront. On the return hike to St. John’s, we split into three groups to learn different parts of Daisy Nell’s song. We were 'just a heartbeat from the ocean’!

The public is warmly invited to a brief performance/review of the camp’s activities at Rockport's Shalin Liu Performance Center Friday, August 24 at 11:15.
