As my campers finished their sculptures, we turned to more painting since
they were doing so well, and having so much fun. So we switched to a little fun
with color theory and gradations. They did a great job mixing & blending colors
and painting their color swatches. Once they dried, we put them back together
to create a mural to put on the wall for all of Lillstreet to see!
Oddly…. many of the kids didn’t quite understand that they paint was supposed
to be on their paintbrushes… and NOT their hands?!!!
And here’s their final result… the mural that all of Lillstreet can now enjoy!
Exactly one month from today?… the Chicago Triathlon.
My first ever. It’s time to start getting nervous, right?!
This week, my Summer Camp is Clay & Multimedia… which means we do a clay
project on Monday, and other art projects throughout the week. So my afternoon
group of campers have switched to a painting project. They’ve chosen photos from magazines and have been working to enlarge them & paint the picture on canvas boards. Some of them have breezed right through it… other have required a little more “assistance.”
And then there’s Emma… who effortlessly created her nautical masterpiece!
A little painting prodigy in the making.
Known to many of you as my wonderful “art fair assistants”…
My parents are vacationing this summer out in Montana and the incredible
Yellowstone National Park. While out there, they’ve been seeing a lot
of natural wonders… as well as these fantastic sculptures found somewhere
out on the road along “The Enchanted Highway.”
Be sure to note the scale of these impressive sculptures…
look at the REAL split-rail fence to the far right bottom corner of the deer sculpture!!!
