Kid's Art

Summer Art Camp 2017!

Sunshine + art…what more could we want! Here’s a few memories of our art making during this years summer camp.

School Age Pottery: Pinch Pots

This winter's pottery class with the school age kids has been a hit.  It is a small, intimate sized class, which gave us all a lot of time and space to play and experiment with the clay.  Being newbies at pottery, the kids have all love that opportunity to pound and roll and manipulate the clay freely.  Our first official project was to make pinch pots and I think they did a fantastic job!  The next step will be to paint and glaze them.  Stay tuned to see how they turn out!

More Spring Tulips!

For the last class of the winter session the kids painted a still life of welcome spring! They first drew a simple sketch of the flowers and then painted their pieces using a limited colour palette. It's so inspiring to see how free and expressive they are. And always so interesting to notice that even though they were looking at the same vase of flowers and had the same paint colours, they are all so unique...just like them!
