Seed to Fiber Textile Art Program
Camille Hulbert & the JEA Children
Camille Hulbert is an advocate for the arts and a self-taught textile artist who creates wearable art. Although she was born and raised in Northern California, her family roots are here in Georgia. She attended elementary school both in California and Georgia. Since relocating to Georgia to pursue a career in Education and Fiber arts, Camille has been inspired to explore the concept of Children's Objects of Art. Camille created an art program that engages youth in after school arts and encourages learning about textiles and textile art techniques. This program is called Seed to Fiber Textile Art Program. She has worked with youth in Atlanta and Savannah over the last ten years.
This is the second year that Camille Hulbert has showcased the work of the youth that participate in the Seed to Fiber Textile Art Program at the Jewish Education Alliance. This year they are showcasing art in the form of assemblage, mixed media, collage and craft. Each form of art has a touch of textile art or involves a textile technique that creates a unique object of art. The Children's Objects of Art Show will also exhibit an area that promotes a community service project that is both a representation of art and advocacy that deals with a contemporary look at what we consider to be "safe space." This art show will also have a virtual component as we adjust to the concept of safe space and social distancing due to the COVID pandemic.
