Boom-tastic lesson


Hilliker Y Camp Trailblazers participant Landon Kelley, 9, of Bellefontaine, left, receives a helping hand with a fireworks-themed art project Monday from local artists Ann Hess, center, and Tonia Terebuh at the Y. Several artists who are Hilliker Y SilverSneakers members have volunteered to teach periodic art sessions with the youths this summer. RoseAnn Robb of Indian Lake also assisted with Monday’s lesson. The camp participants created fireworks designs on their papers by dipping pipe cleaners in paint, and then added letters to their paintings for a sign that will spell out “Happy Fourth of July.” (EXAMINER PHOTO | MANDY LOEHR)
