Art in the Park

Waylon having a great time with the shaving cream--he still smells like Old Spice, even after a bath:)
What a beautiful day to get together with friends and make a huge artsy mess in the great outdoors. I wish I had more pictures, but I was so involved with the art making that despite the camera around my neck, I took only a couple of pictures. I will do better next week.
We made shaving cream prints and did some printing with gadgets and vegetables. For this we used tempera paint on black paper. Adding white to each color ensured that the colors stood out on the black background. All of our colors today were cool colors- blues, greens and purples. These Alaskan kids need strategies for cooling off when the temperature hits 70!
There were about 15 kids between the ages of 2 and 9, not to mention a few babies who were able to watch the fun.
