Yesterdays art class was a lot of fun. What I love most about these sessions is that I never know WHAT projects will be created! I set up a few tables with activities to inspire - but everyone is free to create whatever they like!!
Yesterday one student was fascinated by maps - so he worked with some old maps in his art journal - and then we created a pirate treasure map - using matches to burn the edges...and an ink to stain the paper and make it look old - then they got to draw on the island complete with shark bay, haunted forest, volcano and whatever else they felt their map needed - and the directions to the TREASURE!!! We rolled them up like scrolls and tied them with coloured raffia :)
Another special moment was when B ( a little girl) had just washed her hands - they were still a little damp and she then dipped them in the bowl of sequins - out came beautifully sparkly hands :) hahaha :)
