Crayon Explosion


The Art Junction had a fun workshop called Crayon Explosion.


Participants enjoyed exploring many different methods of using crayons in new and unusual methods.


Learning to melt crayons was lots of fun for all.


Painting with crayon was another fun experiment for everyone as they learned to draw with a warm, soft crayon.


We also created crayons from what was left melted in the muffin tin.


Everyone enjoyed the creative process.


Crayon shavings were also used to create melted images with the iron.


Lots of fun accidents and explorations were had by all participants.


Working together everyone explored this somewhat familiar medium.


Maybe you can join us for our next crayon explosion session in the future at the Art Junction.

Art Camp Jr.

We had our first Jr. Art Camp this year.  It was small in numbers but huge in fun!

Campers had the opportunity to create some yard art with shapes, patterns and paint.

The yard art takes on a whole new look from above and through a window screen.

Splatter painting in the manner of Jackson Pollock was explored on day 1.

Printing with hands was lots of fun as well.

Crayon making was also part of the creative experience.

It was fun to discover many new ways to create using everyday objects.

Exploring print making by using your hand with various colors was lots of fun.

Everyone became immersed in the creative experience.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. -Pablo Picasso
Art Camp Jr. was a huge amount of creative fun!  I hope you can join us for a future class or workshop at the Art Junction.
