Day 5 of ARTragious Art Camp

Well - Friday was the last day of art camp! I think it was a huge success! The last day could have been a more productive day...but, was the first time we at the studio experienced "last day of art camp"! (of course the lights for the bottle lights that we had created on Wednesay were due to arrive on Friday and did not show up at my doorstep until 5:30pm - waaaaaay after art camp was OVER!!!) For those of you artists that are still missing your bottle lights...I will get them to you as soon as I return from Chicago, on Friday! (Sorry!!!)

We or shall I say "I" focused on creating jewelry items for the girls using the scrabble chips and mini domino designs that I create. They had a ball picking them out and pairing their selections with beads! We also finished up on the inspirational signs that we had started on Tuesday! I just fell in love with all of them! The girls did awesome putting them together! You can take a peek at some of them below...

Well - it is sad that art camp is over! But I do look forward to another one! I will keep everyone posted as to when the next camp will be!

And thank you to ALL of the girls that attended camp this past week! Everyone was wonderful...everyone had their own unique and creative style - it was fun to watch them explore and create the projects that I had selected for them! I will surely miss them all because I too made some new friends! :-)

Day 4 of ARTragious Art Camp...Mixed Media Day!

Well...I have to say...I am just thrilled with what came out of the studio today! All of our little artists did a fabulous job with their mixed media creations! Our theme was "Once upon a time..." and it truly was since now our artists can say..."Once upon a time we had no idea how to create a mixed media piece..." and now they can!!! Our day ran over today...and I am truly blessed that the parents did not kill me when it was time to pick up their child and found out they were too busy creating to actually leave art camp! But...with a few extra moms in house at the very end to help alleviate some of the chaos in getting their creations completed...sides painted, front signed and all varnished...we were able to make it!

So...with that said, please take a look at the mixed media masterpieces our little artists created today! I can not tell you how very proud I am of each and every one of them!

Day 3 - ARTragious Art Camp!

The art project that we had scheduled today was a little challenging! Vibrant bottle lights was our goal! The little artists just needed to trust me when I said "nope...keep adding to it"! When they did, more color popped and their bottle designs started to take shape! Overall, all of our artists did a super duper job today! I am very proud of all of them! Take a peek at what came out of the studio today!

Don't they look fabulous once they are all lit up?!?!

Oh what a garden variety makes!

Tomorrow is mixed media specialty! I can't wait to see how the kids do!
