  Fifth Element Photography is sponsoring the PTSA Art Camp 2018 to enable youth engagement in the arts. Regardless of the medium —photography, sketching, watercolors, pastels, fiber — art activities help us expand our thinking, perspective and awareness. We become more sensitive to the needs of others and create a rich experience for ourselves and for the people viewing our art. We are delighted to celebrate art and culture by supporting Art Camp 2018.
