Art Camp -day 3


The final day of Art Camp was about tye-dye.


Everyone learned about the process from preparing the shirts in soda ash…


to tying the shirts in certain patterns for the various dyed designs.


Everyone picked a color pattern for their shirts and began the process of adding color.


Tye-dye is always lots of work and much fun, and it’s a great thing to be able to wear the art you make in the end.  What a great Art Camp this summer!

The final day of Art Camp

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.
