    “Our summer art camps are creative, colorful, and most importantly fun! I want my campers to explore and practice new art techniques and build on their creativity–all while enjoying the camp experience. I look forward to an awesome summer!” -Nathan Johnson

    Collage artist and illustrator Nathan Johnson returns for his third year with MPA Summer Art Camps. As an artist, Mr. Johnson seeks to find inspiration through what he sees in every day life–a sunset, certain color combinations in a book, or images that pop into his head. “I find so much satisfaction in exploring the medium and letting it take me on a journey,” says Mr. Johnson. A long-time art teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools, Mr. Johnson’s work has appeared in the FCPS faculty art show. His work has also hung in the Northern Virginia Community College Art Department and at Busboys and Poets.
