ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

South Georgia teens explored their creative sides at art camp. The Albany Area Arts Council wrapped up a week-long Teen Art Camp on Friday.

The young artists showed off their work to their parents at a closing reception.

"I learned that there's different ways to do things and that you don't always have to stick to conformity," said camper AJ Walker.

The teens said they enjoyed making art with other creative people.

"I totally gained experience and knowledge about new things like mediums and different types of paper," said camper Isabella "Izzy Sauls".

13 students took part in the camp. That doubled the attendance during the first camp in 2015.

"We have a bunch of students that are just coming together and seeing that there are other kids their age interested in art and finding opportunities that they can get involved," said instructor Meredith Lear-Perkins.

The Arts Council plans to do host the camp again next year.
