Summer may be fading, but the skills and experiences Creative Minds summer camp participants received will stay vivid for a very long time.

A new six-week program at NewBridge Cleveland, the Creative Minds camp offered 30 local middle schoolers the chance to learn ceramics, photography, and graphic design in two-week rotations. Instructors included cinematographer Robert Banks, ceramicist Billy Ritter (of Billy Ritter 77), and artist Natalie Eddy, and former NewBridge students (like Isaiah Kancler) came on board as studio techs in the same discipline they studied at NewBridge. See the creative sparks fly in our photo roundup by Fresh Water managing photographer Bob Perkoski.
