Grace Camp Times Two

Last week and the week before were devoted to one of my favorite summertime activities- Grace Academy Art Camp at The Grace Museum in Abilene. I taught a weeklong camp for first and second graders that coincided with the Dr. Seuss festival going on downtown, and so we enjoyed a week of very silly Seuss-inspired art projects including a silly sentence book, Lorax masterpieces and mustaches, Cat in the Hat hats, balloon cars, relief prints, Samburu necklaces and other things. I also taught a two day camp for wee ones going into kindergarten, and we somehow managed to finish fish sculptures, bird watercolors, owl weavings, One Fish Two Fish paintings, and giant sombrero hats. Here are some iPhone shots from the two camps.
