SUMMER CAMP ~ WEEK TWO....
Pottery Puppy Face Plates
Having taught my first preschool art camp last week ~ I am now ready to take on the world ~ or at least week #2 of preschool art. The week began bright and sunny. We spent the first morning outside ~ playing with clay and constructing pottery puppy face plates. The children had fun creating "worm families" ~ then used their knowledge of circle and triangle shapes to make the features for their puppies faces. And, of course, more wormies for the puppies whiskers.
The drying process ~ outside in the sun. Once dry they will be placed in the kiln, fired, then ready for glazing.

Play time and Snack
After a little break for play and snack, the artists got back to business.
Animal Collage Pictures
Two colors were chosen for the under-painting~ pink being the main color choice ~ go figure! The artists covered their canvas with color. To add texture, the girls used real leaves and flowers as stamps. One of the girls even found a mushroom ~ which made for a most exciting stamp!!! Even better than that were those groovy sunglasses which I am totally digging ~ they were not used for stamps ~ but added to the overall cool artists factor.
The little artists and what they see looking at them.
Hand Painted T-Shirts
The Artist created hand painted t-shirts using simple shapes, and acrylic paint.
