What a week with non-stop adorable crafts!
Monday was all about terra cotta clay pottery!
We painted pots, made them into gumball machines and mini cacti pots!
Wednesday gave us a fairly huge dose of MineCraft Mania...
we chatted about pixelation, cubism and dove right in painting favorite characters!
This 'ol gal learned lots about MineCraft!
We painted 4" cubes with 5 favorite characters or a favorite character that stands up.
They all chose cool things to paint 'cause they are cool kids!
They spent a lot of time on this and it shows how proud they are of their art!
We also made Perler bead pixelated MineCraft charms, key rings and necklaces...I forgot to take pictures except for these cuties!
Decisions, decisions...what character to paint!
Ninjas, Captain America, Cops and cool dudes...very nice!
Mario, creeper, Spider man, morshroom and the Hulk all made appearances!
Friday morning we painted t-shirts...first with batik relief with gel glue and paint...
and then we pulled out puff paints
and fabric pens!
Friday afternoon was a Lilly Pulitzer PowWow with loads of color,
pattern and a lesson about this creative American clothing icon.
We talked about her use of wild color and how she painted everything to do with her life in Florida and how she launched her resort wear...
and how she was a wild one and always painted her name into every pattern.
Miss Paige helped with her creative talents to show some of the girls how to add color and texture!
The beginnings of beautiful pineapples!
and learning how to paint the Lilly swirl flowers around a silhouette!
I can't stand the cuteness factor here...look how much fun!
We talked about how Lilly Pulitzer always paints her name into every pattern...and played "where's the Lilly?" Can you see it below?!
And how clever of Miss Avery...she painted her own name into her bamboo pattern...can you see it?
What a clever gal!
Here's the results of a productive day! Can you see her silhouette in the bamboo?
Beautiful flowers on her clipboard and love the silhouette...
And don'tcha just love Paige's watermelons? She is so talented!
