Drawing & Painting art camp is a hit @WB MUD

Today was fantastic in getting to know our campers and what they like to do with art. We started with some special paper and fluorescent markers to do our interpretation of Picasso's guitars from his musical period. The markers develop over an hour or two into very intense colors. We reviewed the drawings at the end of the day to many WOWs. Great variety of guitars from the group. We then switched to drawing and painting on a small fabric bag. Neighbors shared beautiful shells for camp so we had them on the tables as reference. It is harder to draw from a 3-D object than a flat picture. They then painted them with fabric paints and except for a few "baths" the projects came off without a hitch. Kids learned how to get just the look they wanted on their bags. Tomorrow we'll add small shells. Our last project was taking sheet music and drawing stories on it. I found this on Pinterest and have to love the Russian art movement producing them. The kids started on their folder covers and some free draw time plus a session of "draw with me" of a very fat fish with fins. Got in a bit of commercial and science about fish to boot.
Here are links to the facebook albums until I can finish the camp pages. We have had so much fun this week and are looking forward to the remaining weeks of art camp. Space is still open in all camps.  Painting & Drawing art camp day 1   Painting & drawing camp day 2    Painting & drawing day 3
