Some local youths are in their second day of art camp at the Albany Museum of Art. "Kindercamp" is a four day art camp for children ages three to five years old.

The campers create art work to be displayed for their parents at the end of the week. This is the second time the summer camp has been offered at the Albany Art Museum. Instructors say more art camps are needed to help young children develop learning skills.

"Research has shown that students and young children that are exposed to art early on develop a better understanding of the core curriculum subjects such as math and science and reading," said Kindercamp Instructor Allison Starr. "It can just better their educational outcomes later on in life." 

This is the first time "Kindercamp" has been offered to students for four days. Instructors hope that the Art Museum will host the camp again next summer.
