Art in the Park!

A day in the park with a few 10 year olds. Who knew it could make hearts so happy, so light!

I set out the supplies, they came — with their open hearts and a willing, eagerness that knocked my socks off. Heart-and-book-smart young souls. Exploring, trusting their instincts, embracing it all! They found their own great ideas:

Gesso first, then paint? Got it! But what happens when you smush the pages together?!

This student totally got the craft of *journaling* in art. She snuck in secret wishes, writing over and over the words so they’ll be forever hidden, known only to her.

Then she DIY — and made her own envelope for secret stashing.

Or you could try this: make your own envelope design with washi tape on the side. No patterns necessary.

Love washi tape? Make a whole washi mosh-pit!

The whole afternoon was one “Bon Jour”!

*Special thanks to Lisa Henderson for coordinating this fun little event, and to the moms who trusted their courageous creative young souls into my care.
