I can't believe the last Kid's Towne Hall summer art class is already next week! And only 3 more at Hobby Lobby. Where has the time gone? It has been a real joy for me to work with these adorable kids and watch their creativity blossom. It's truly a God given gift!
We'll be making a mixed media collage. We’ll create an interesting background with paints using various techniques then we’ll add charcoal, oil pastels, inks, printed text, stamps, glitter, and three dimensional embellishments.
These are several samples I've made..
I used a piece of poplar wood and made this with some paint and things that are easily found around the house. Do you see where I used bubble wrap to imprint paint?
Similar techniques with different colors and elements produces a totally different look. And the boys can make one using stars and more rugged elements!
I'll show the kids each step to create their very own mixed media collage. This project will really allow their creativity to shine...and they'll cherish it for years to come!
A GREAT IDEA...One of the moms suggested doing a "Santa's Workshop" class series at Christmas time where the kids can make special handmade gifts for their friends and family. I love the idea and have been really considering it. What do you think? Do you have any good ideas of any gift-giving things we could make? I'd love to hear your suggestions! I thought of making scented soaps.
