Stick With Art!

I enjoyed spring break art camp last week at Lansing Art Gallery. Young artists, 7-11, explored utilizing sticks to create art--WOW!! I was amazed and delighted at their creativity with weaving sticks, adding air dry clay to sticks and making a shield with sticks and twigs.  We also used chenille stems, silverware, wire, chopsticks and straws to make up our own sticks. Good Job Class!

Trying out Something New

I had a great time on Saturday afternoon at the Lansing Art Gallery, Lansing MI!  I participated in Layna Lesnau's "Image Transfer" class where we experimented on wood and paper with transfers--what a BLAST!
