Today, I took Mia to an Art Adventure Day at the Cathedral. We had a great time. She was reluctant to go when I picked her up. A half our in , she proclaimed she did not want to leave and she wanted to come back every day!! We only had 4 kids as four had to drop out at the last minute for a family event. So it was an easy peasy day.
They talked a bit about Chinese culture, especially celebrations. Then, if they didn’t know, we found out what animal year they were born in. It was suggested, but not mandatory that they could design a stick puppet of that animal.
Here is Mia working on her rabbit.
McKenzie decided to do a funky monkey:
Alex made 3-headed snake.
Kate made a dragon and a small mouse.
I made this snake for Milo so that he could join in the fun with Mia.
Here is Alice, our cathedral art director helping the kids. She is such a great teacher and has a real warmth and sense of humor.
Here they are doing an impromptu puppet show:
I have my supplies all packed and I am ready to attend my 5-day class on shibori dyeing. I’ll try to check in with some photos of my work.
