We completed our stretch of workshops!!! Wow, what an amazing seven days. We started last Wednesday with a collage mirror class for Sweat Peaz and our good friends Jodi and Vicki. Thursday we did a fundraiser for the Harpswell Nursery School, making "green art". Leslie and I left Friday at lunch time for our first ever Art Retreat at Kieve. We spent the weekend teaching five workshops on mixed media collage. I will post later with some great photos and pics of our fun times. We consider ourselves so blessed to have enjoyed such an amazing group of woman. We enjoyed old friends and made some new ones.
It was hard coming home and jumping in to three days of Girl Time Art camp. I had to clean my studio and prepare all of the materials. One day I will be organized an have that completed weeks ahead of time. I woke Monday to two sessions of awesome camps. In the morning we had girls between the ages of 5 and 8 from 9 am to 11 am. Our theme was "softies" and each day the girls made a softie. They used both hand and machine sewing....and at desperate times even the glue stick. The senior girls came from 1 to 4 and enjoyed the same lessons, but at their own level. Leslie and I were exhausted each day, but so incredibly happy.
I will post pictures each day so you can see some of the great people and art that was made. So keep checking back. We are taking registration for our summer camps and are already filling up, so make sure you sign up soon.
