Art Camp Fun

Monday I hosted my first camp of the summer season.  Boy, did we make some amazing work!!  First up, mini camper paintings.....I wonder what inspired this idea?  hmmmmm.....These are acrylic paintings on canvas boards.
 We also painted with watercolors on paper puppies with bugs on their noses.  Man, these are stink'n cute!!
The main project was a macaw painting on 11x14 wrapped canvas with acrylic paints.  We used all sorts of fun materials to texture the background from bubble wrap, doilies, packing peanuts and leaf masks.  The kids did an amazing job of layering the backgrounds with these tools!  And then the bird itself, geesh they surprised me with their talents.  And I should tell you they were ages 7-11.  Yeah.  I know.  Talent.
My next camp is July 18-20t.  We will be packing in the painting, ceramics and sculpture projects these 3 days.  If you live in the area, give me a call!!  I'd love to have your child join me!
