What a Week!

I can't believe our art week is over! We did SO many different things this week, everything from sewing outfits to making exploding bath salts! We inked, painted, beaded, assembled, stenciled...wow!

Today we ended our week-long camp with a day of friendship and sharing. Morning girls worked on lovely beach scenes in a tin. They also made fun unique tag books out of cartoon mermaid fabrics. They were so cute! We enjoyed finishing our "upcycled" jeans. Lastly, we gathered for an autograph and cupcake party!

Afternoon girls enjoyed finishing their beautiful embroidery sampler. They then created a gorgeous terrarium using succulent plants, beach glass glitter, rocks, stones, and of course a little mermaid! We then made heart necklaces for our autographs. We ended our day with cupcakes and "art talk."

Thank you so much for making my week-long art camp a part of your daughter's summer. I hope she learned a lot and had FUN! What an awesome group of girls!

Thanks to our teen helpers again this year, Emily and Grace. You're the BEST!

Please stay tuned for more art workshops on this website.

Artfully yours,
Mendy!

Thursday's Art World ROCKS!

Thursday was an excellent art day! We did a lot of painting and assembling mixed media. Morning girls were joined by a few "Little Friends!" We invited several little sisters along, and showed them a few art tricks! We painted and decorated fancy mermaid hair brushes, and then made a starfish keepsake jar! We finished the morning working on our upcycled jeans, adding a stencil here and there.
 
Afternoon girls were busy with their embroidery hoop sampler and drawings of sea life. We also decorated beautiful personalized mermaid mirrors. The last creation we made today was a one-of-a-kind canvas using fashion magazines! How fun!!
