Dance / Art Workshop Day 1

Todays Theme was a Fall Festival. We had fun creating Magical Masks and Lighted Lanterns...The Lanterns were a great addition to our Art Room. They really brought things to life! This year, we had about 30 students sign up. There were 12 children in the 4-6 Year old class, 14 children in the 7-9 year old class and 4 children in the 10-12 year old class. They really kept us moving. It was so much Fun!!!

Dance / Art Workshop Day 3

Today's Theme was Spring. We made fun little Wire Bugs. We then were finally able to complete our Mural of "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Geroges Seurat. It's another Great addition to the Art Room. Today's Theme was Wonderful Winter. We did Watercolor Polar Bears using 4 different techniques and the younger class put together Winter Collages... (thanks to Amy I have a wonderful collage of the winter collages...I was not so consistent in taking pictures. It was just too exciting in the art room)

Dance / Art Workshop Day 4

Today we celebrated Summer. These were little hanging mobiles made out of plastic cups based on the work of Dale Chihuly...I found this idea HERE They had a ton of fun creating these, although they were very messy! If we do it again, it's much better to use Acrylic Paint as Tempera Paint just peels right off. It was a great idea and the kids loved it and that's really whats important... Our Next Dance / Art Workshop will be July 18-21. If anyone is interested in joining us, let me know...It will be the last one this summer and the last Art class for me for atleast a year as I will be having a another wonderful little baby in the Fall...
