Another week of art camp is complete! Boo-ya!
The class was over-filled with 13 artists, and Magoo started his own camp this week, so I was short a helper. YOWZA - did I feel it.
Still, I had some fabulous young artists in the group and we had a lot of fun. Here are some highlights.
The kids always love dipping the rice paper squares into the dyes to create a batik effect.
In years past, I had the kids do Zomo rabbit masks, but this year I switched up the design and added rafia. They looked great!
I'm always attracted to African textiles and patterns so I only did one animal project. Note for next year: the kids want more animals. But they did make some fabulous watercolor guineafowl.
See - here's what I'm talking about with the textiles and patterns. The kids did a great job, but 50% were getting bored painting stripes, so I'll have to shake this one up for next year.
Now we enter the final week: Native American Wonders. This is the first time I've done a fourth week and all the Native American projects are new this year! We'll see how it goes!
Thanks so much for stopping by. It's a gorgeous day outside, so I think I'll go out and play frisbee with my menfolk.
