We enrolled Olivia in two summer art camps at the Cultural Arts Center in downtown Greensboro. The morning session was a Dr. Seuss-themed camp that had them look at some of his books and take inspiration from the stories to do their own works.
|Her turtle, inspired by Yurtle the Turtle|
|She had to write her own poem and illustrate it in book form.|
|She made her own "Thing" from Cat In The Hat|
In the afternoon, she had a camp that did a lot of work inspired by other artists and used a bunch of mixed-media.
|Olivia made a "Triorama" of her dream playground|
|Starry Night by Van Gogh|
|They made their own sketchbooks|
|splatter painting like Jackson Pollack|
|They made their own paint and did some finger painting|
|"Oh wait! It's upside down!"|
|More splatter painting|
|They did a group project where one person drew a head, one a torso and the third legs, but they couldn't look at the previous person's work|
|They made shakers with beans and a toilet paper tubee|
|The looked at Henna tattoos and did their own on a glove (because drawing on our own hands might not be a good idea...:)|
