Summer Classes Have Started!
We had a great week in The Creative Arts Studio as we started our first week's lessons for the summer. The Teen class worked on the 3-dimensional letter project. We were able to get the first step done be creating an "armiture" out of bathroom cups and chipboard for our sculptures. Ask your kids in that class if they remember what an armiture is! The new "Mom and Me" class had a great time reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and then doing leaf printing, fuzzy caterpillars and coffee filter butterflies. I had such a great time in that class! The 4 year olds all the way up through the 11 year olds had a lesson on Claude Monet where we created a "mini Monet" on canvas using oil pastels and oil. They also got to paint their very own mini easels. All of the projects are drying this week and should be ready for the kids to take home next class time. I had so much fun teaching about Monet, one of my favorite famous artists! Thanks for enrolling in summer classes. All of your kids have such talent, are so well behaved and a lot of fun to be around! Check out my Flickr account to see photos of the art show and kids working in the studio.
