Between recharging my camera and doing so much on Tuesday, I only managed to get a handful of snaps...
this is the only picture I got of this project! The kids painted a sky over oil resist white clouds and then drew themselves in "flying away" on a kite. These turned out great- I really wish I had more pictures to share!
We also played an artsy game of "Simon Says" and painted a night sky with a house, moon and stars into a border saying to "Shoot for the Stars" These were also gorgeous but alas, NO pictures!
We ended the day with practicing mixing colors- I always get a kick of how
magical this seems to the kids- SO much fun!
Then yesterday, we did a more complicated project- the biggest challenge of having such a range of ages (5-9) is figuring out projects that A, they haven't done before and B, aren't too hard for the littles or too "babyish" for the older kids. This one took a LOT of time but came out wonderful!
Funny, out of ALL the supplies I have to offer- this guy goes for the sharpies every time!
And an alternate project:
"Hearts and Hands and Flowers"
For the last project of the day, we did a Mmory Quilt and again,
things got too busy for me to get more than one picture...
This is the water color background with oil pastel "stitching"
They finished these with three illustrations of things they love or mean a lot to them.
So that's all for now. Today's the last day of camp and though I'm tired, it has been FUN! I'll be back soon with pictures of our last projects and to catch up on what YOU guys have been up to. I've missed my Bloggety friends!
