so. i just agreed to teach fiber arts camp at one of our local arts centers to 8-12 year olds – NEXT WEEK!! yikes!
here’s the description:
Explore the vast array of art that can be created from fibers including string, yarn, fabric, paper, straw and more. Try your hand at weaving, dyeing and even painting with fibers. The art you make can be hung as paintings, displayed as sculptures, worn or used, or turned into installation art. Explore the endless possibilities.
the good news is that my friend adina (who got me the job) will be teaching one set of students in the morning and i’ll have another, then we switch – and she has it loosely set up already… but honestly, if any of you have FABULOUS ideas of what to do with these kids, i’d love it if you’d pass them along.
i’ve been collecting supplies while cleaning the yarn room. good timing!
