Four of us from CAA spent four days working with kids at the Resource Center at their Art Camp. It got off to a great start with the solar eclipse! Our first project was painting wooden fish and crabs. Then we designed a stamp on styrofoam and printed papers for the collage project. The last day was Scratch Art and almost 100% of them said it was their favorite project. 24 middle aged students signed but but not all came each day so we had anywhere from 22 to 14 for a little over 2 hours. It worked out real well and I think we all enjoyed it! Hard to tell with some of them but what they created was really cool.
Painting a big octopus is really a lot of fun!!! This guy helped to create some very cool bags and shirts. Art buddies used him one weekend and my family used him two weeks later during the reunion. Wowsie results on the black bags with interference paints. You can freeze and refreeze these critters since you will not be eating them!
Octopi seem to stay damp longer than the fish and of course the spray bottle helped.
My art always looks so good at Laurie's Boutique in Stanwood. Sue does an excellent job of placing the work and the clothes in just the right proximity!! It was fabulous that my month was July as I got to be in two events and....my family was able to see my work displayed as that was when I hosted the family reunion. It was a win win situation.
