African Safari Art Camp

This past week at Little Tree Art Studio we learned about the beautiful country of S. Africa.  Throughout the week we learned how to make paper jewelry, fabric batik, clay pottery,  plaster masks and temporary tattoos.

Fabric Batik...

First step was  creating the African design on paper which was traced through onto the white fabric with a glue-like gel.  The next day when the gel was dry the children died their batiks with dye (1/2 acrylic paint mixed with 1/2 water)

"Now that you found the lion I can stop my crying, but im still worried about my giraffe that likes to play climb and laugh.  He likes to swing and slide and splash beside cold water . We eat lunch at the circle that goes around at a place called  ___________    playground."
