Sparkle Art Workshop 2011!

Our Sparkle Art Workshop was so much fun! We dashed into action making darling identification metal bracelets with brightly colored beads. We then used the sewing machine to make a soft pouch for them! Making holiday hangers were next. Using the Big Shot machine was huge hit! We ended our workshop creating beautiful "party" girls with sketch pencils.












Matilda Pearl made an entrance...she loved everyone!



Cupcakes and Lemonade Punch were waiting for us at the end!

Tea Party Inchie Swap! Last Day of Fun!

How can it be? Art Camp 2011 is officially over? No way!!

We had a very exciting day today! Our morning session began bright and early with handmade heart pillows. We even made them smell like magnolia blossoms! We enjoyed sewing and stuffing them so much...we decided to make one into a headband. Why not?

Our Tea Party Luncheon was served promptly at noon. We enjoyed the pin wheel tea sandwiches and shoe string potatoes. The salad was yummy with the mint green dressing. Dessert was little tea cakes with chocolate drizzle.

Afternoon fun began with sketches of the latest bathing suits and beach attire. We also sketched a few purses and totes. We soon began making our little "Inchie Tins" with paint and papers. This tin was made to hold all the "Two-Inchies" we made for the big Tea Party Swap. Our party began around 3:00...trading and discussing who did which "Inchie." We put each creation in our little decorated tins. Pink Cupcakes and Pink Lemonade hit the spot!

Max brought out Miss Matilda for goodbyes. She really enjoyed meeting all of the artists.

I enjoyed having your precious little girls this week. I hope they came home with wonderful art discoveries. Thank you for letting my art camp be a part of your child's summer!

Artfully yours,
Mendy Mitrani

Thursday's Thrilling Art Day!

Our morning got started with new fashions on our sketch books. We then created new "Girls" using patterned paper. We covered new journals with the girls and gave them a personal touch. Lunch was fun...pizza and Coke Floats!

The afternoon session began with decorating boxes with patterned papers and ribbon. We used our photographs to make them really special! We then started decorating our tin boxes for tomorrow's project. We'll let those dry overnight before we finish with them.

Tomorrow will be our last art day together. We will have a very special day of friendship and round robin trading. We'll be making "2 inchies" and swapping them during our end of camp tea party. Cupcakes will be given out after the swap!
