Origami success at art camp @ WBCL

We then tried a dog face with ears. Lastly we let them chose 2-3 sheets of the pre-marked paper to take home and do more folding. I had several books from the library available for check-out and they all went home with the aspiring artists. 

The Arts mini-camp is held at the Wells Branch Community Library and taught by Dianne Koehler.
When I was given a pack of origami paper last winter, I knew we had to try this at camp. About half of the kids said they'd done origami at some point but no one could do it without directions or a book. We decided to make simple items so everyone would be able to be successful. 

Keighla led them through information about Origami and the kinds of papers we had the began the folds to make a cup and a hat.
