When you are 5 years old, a two hour camp, no matter how much fun, can we solved that problem by turning our art room into a "magic room." After all, out theme was "where the wild things are!"
No adults could see the art unless the magic word was spoken. And the mysterious bumps and bangs that came through the walls or from upstairs were the work of the mischievous, and shy blobs that constituted some of our art. With the help of my able assistant, 16 yr old Maddie, we transformed art camp into imagination camp!

Next camp is for the older kids 11 and up the week of June 17-21...but they may not be able to see our mischievous "lil Pete!"

Art at 79...60....50....39.......oh my!

SO June 8 was our ART RETREAT and oh my, what a great time we had! And yes, one of our participants was a vibrant 79 years old and jumped right into the art zone with us!

Journaling is all about the journaler and what she wants to include on her various pages. So using  basic art supplies available to everyone, and incorporating some stress relieving tips and techniques, each participant spent the afternoon learning to become "one with her art."

Yep-it ain't that easy initially because we ALL want to be told what to do and especially in art-expectations are always based on one's previous art experiences and teachers! So step by step the ladies all learned to loosen up, let go and then-walla! They created.....and marveled at how easy it was after all!

Check it out! below:

See the woman in blue standing to the left and sitting and raising her hands in the air to the right? Patricia was our 79 years young student who, along with the others, reveled in the freedom of "no holds barred" art.

Each person took home the enthusiasm and techniques necessary to continue their art journey-there are a lot of pages to cover!

Our next art retreat is scheduled for Saturday July 27! Visit me on facebook to stay up to date on what's happening! or
