Session 2, Week 2!


This week was a funny week. A lot of the kiddos’ schools were on vacation, so our classes were much smaller than normal. We got to work one on one with the kids and really chat with each one about art, life, goofy things. We started off by painting the plaster pieces they created last week. They used the knowledge they gained from learning about mixing colors to create the color schemes for their pieces. We only supplied primary colors, black and white… They made all of the others with their color guides by their sides to reference.

Next, we talked about the work of Jenni Rope and her company Napa Books. Jenni’s work tied into our plaster pieces, we showed some of her installations that had similar vibes. Our next project was to have the kiddos create their own flip books, so it was really great to show some of Napa Books’ examples to get them excited. If you want check out Jenni’s work, click here. And to check out Napa Books, click here.

The kids were very excited over creating their own flip books. They are certainly time consuming, so we will be working on them little by little at the beginning and end of the coming classes. I will upload some videos of final products.

Kelly and I look forward to welcoming back all the vacationing kids next week, so we can catch them up and move on to working with all of their favorite medium: clay!

In the meantime, we have posted session 3, still have an early bird discount on summer camps, and have a lot of GREAT adult workshops coming up (use code ARTARTART for a 20% discount this weekend only! – Click here to check it all out!
