Our last project was an attempt at alla prima painting. Our art inspiration came from Jesus' parable of the four soils. We painted a vase of flowers, using brushes and palette knives. This was the kind of instant gratification the kids needed after the endurance required for the mosaics.
On the first day of camp, they picked out fabric for a flower. On the last day of camp, my high school assistants finally assembled the flowers. Everyone was able to leave with one...Even the boy...And all the beauties...Here are my high school assistants that I have so come to rely on over the past three years. They help my life run smoother (most of the time), and they saved me this week in art camp!
