Art in the Park: Lighthouses

It's my 7th summer of Art in the Park and we're having a fun time.
This week, the other two guest artists are Mrs. Schlette and Mrs. G. Johnson.
My unofficial name this week is "Ms. JJ" which they got a kick out of. What else are we to do with two Mrs. Johnsons in Kunkle Park?!
Great group. This first week is for 5-7 year olds. Next week we go from ages 7-12.
My first project for the week is this lighthouse painting.

We talked about the history of lighthouses for a bit and the kids impressed me with their knowledge and creative thinking.
On Monday, we set to drawing a lighthouse and used watercolors for the backgrounds.
Today, we added some of the details in and started our second project. 
Tomorrow will be more details and work on the background of the second project (giraffe painting).

I am enjoying being outside in the mornings and seeing all of the art in progress. We have all sorts of projects happening and I look forward to sharing the art show images with you later in the week.
So far, I've seen two Bear Tavern students this week (yay!). Gavin is in the camp with me and Aldo happened to be biking by with his family and stopped to say hello and chat for a bit.
Over and out until later in the week.
