Art Camp, Day 1: Self Portraits
This week I am teaching after-school drawing and painting classes to 3rd - 5th graders for a camp that the DIY Lounge is running at Buckman Arts Focus School, along with the fab Cathy Pitters who is teaching fiber arts to the younger kids (they are making the cutest little monster dolls!).
For the first day, I set up a table in the school's Dance Studio (formerly known as a gym) so that the kids could face the mirrored walls and create self portraits which were colored with oil pastels. It turned out great and I am looking forward to the rest of the week.
