2 posts-set up day and weed painting

WOW- i cant believe I am even breathing- it took all day to get my classroom cleaned and assembled and ready to be a gallery.
I realize that if i was more organized and started earlier I could avoid the long set up- but hey- its just the way it is.
I let the kids create and help them right up to the last minute. These are the camper mosaics and  paintings.

I ended the day by watching the camp musical "Little Shop of Horrors"
The kids were amazing- such talent! I have goosebumps.

OOPS- yesterdays post never got published! Today was our festival day at camp- it is always great to meet the parents of the kids I have spent the last 5 weeks with,
Here is one of my all time favorite mosaics done by a 15 year old camper

A toaster I salvaged from the dump! Complete with wooden toast!
I painted on my weed panel when i got home - I planned on doing a lot more on it but my daughter Markie said she liked the graphic quality so I stopped ( then worked on my secret painting!)

Your students are so creative and talented...and they benefitted so much from your tutelage! Looks like a fantastic experience for all...and that toaster? Fantastic!
