Art Smorgasbord

Kids had a blast experimenting with different mediums: clay, watercolor, pastel, and acrylic paints. They’re often happy to return to pastel painting.

The first day we made stuff with sculpt-it air dry clay. The biggest lesson everyone seems to come away with is that the clay has limitations, and learning what those are make for better work.

Day 3 Pastel

               

Day 4 – Paint the clay stuff and make an acrylic paintings.  Thank you to the artist, Marc Broadway, who makes cool fauve animal paintings. He’s an inspiration to us.

                   

What a fun summer!
