Japanese Hot Air Balloons

During this summer art camp, Little Artists made a beautiful hot air ballon using plaster sheets. And this wasn't  your average hot air balloon either, they created an animal hot air balloon! Molding the plaster to make cute ears, stubby snouts, and wings. When the plaster was dry they took their time painting on all the details with acrylic paint. Artists also wove the balloon basket  using string and real twigs, braided the small ropes to hold the balloon together and painted small pennant flags for decoration.
