Carousel of Animals Camp

For one week every summer I will put a pause on my Decorative and Fine Arts Camp and switch gears. From 6-12 year olds come the 12-18 year olds. We spend an entire week creating large scale carousel animal inspired sculptures. The campers design their animals, I build them wooden armatures, and then they cover them in chicken wire, papier maché and paint. Unfortunately the historic carousel was closed this summer for renovations while we held the camp, but before they tore up the roof of the carousel pavilion we were at least able to have a nice photo shoot!

More Blossoms

I had my last day teaching at the Family Art Studio at Glen Echo this past Saturday. It was an amazing final day. My youngest brothers even came to visit me! I will miss working at Glen Echo, but I cannot sustain a 6-7 day work week forever, so I decided to ask if I could transition to occasional substitute.

However, the classes will still take place without me, so if you have little ones in the DC area, and you want an amazing weekend art activity that is infant, toddler, and kid friendly, visit the Candy Corner at Glen Echo from 10-12:30 every Saturday. It’s $10 per child, and there is no sign up necessary, just drop in! More info at pgip.org20150509_141939
