Designing and stitching imaginary creatures for the holiday fair. Each softie will have a tag so the child who receives it will know it’s their creature to define and name. Imaginary play making is the goal. They also appeal to the big kid in me. And to some of you, who have commented to me. I’m sure new shapes and features will continue to emerge as I sew.
Taught some middles yesterday (9-13 year olds) at the gallery for a Veteran’s/Armistice day camp. We made collage cut and paste Giving Thanks cards. The kids all got stuck in and had a blast. Another gal taught a still life pumpkin and squash paint. A scavenger hunt on the park rounded out the day. Nice for everyone all around. You can see the canvases live up on the counter and the busy hands at the tables. Favorite tool? My paper crimper!
