The last day of Art Camp involved the many-step process of creating tie-dye t-shirts.
After soaking their shirts in soda ash solution campers next decided upon the design they wished to tie their shirts into before adding dye.
There were many designs to choose from in which to tie shirts in preparation for the dying process.
The step everyone was “dyeing” for was choosing the colors and patterns to apply to their shirt.
Everyone chose their own pattern and set of colors in which to apply the dye as they completed their shirts, and then they had to let them sit in sealed bags for at least 24 hours before rinsing, washing and drying.
Campers also added finishing touches to their bug sculptures with tempera paint.
Everyone enjoyed our first three-day art camp and were amazed at how quickly the time flew by as they were immersed in the creative process.
I hope you can add the Art Junction to your weekend plans!
This is the last full weekend for the 4th grade art show, Friday & Saturday, 4:30 -7 pm.
Come view the monochromatic paintings of the Willard City Schools 4th grade visual art students under the direction of artist/teacher Kevin Casto. Support the emerging art talents of these young artists by attending their exhibition this spring as they visually express themselves and the greater community around them. Students will also have their Underground Railroad quilt on display.
The 4th grade students’ 16” x 20” monochromatic paintings will be on sale during the exhibit. All proceeds from the sale of their artwork will be placed in the Outdoor Education fund for their 6th grade experience at Mohican Outdoor School. We hope you will participate! Their artwork would be a great addition to your home, business or organization!
If you know of any businesses that need some great art for their offices stop by the Art Junction and support the 4th grade as they raise funds for their Outdoors Education Trip to Mohican by selling their monochromatic paintings. Saturday night next door to the Art Junction the world famous Swiss Steak Dinner will be held at the New Haven United Methodist Church from 5 – 6:30 p.m.
