Planes, Planes, Planes...
Last month I helped Wynne out with the DUMBO, Kids At Clay summer art camp and it was such a treat. Working with clay is such a different experience then sewing and making clothing. I love the contrast and how differently the projects taken home function. The biggest project of the week were the airplanes. These had so many parts to them, and took a long time to build. Each bi-plane came with wheels, propellers, two sets of wings, and some even have people and figurines built in!
You can see from the photos above how unique each student decorated, from the difference in color story, patterns to style of painting. I love the individuality that shines through of each student with each piece of pottery, and watching the art come together from the very first conception of the ideas, through the beginning stages of building, to the completion of painting each piece.
I love the thought of having my own plane. There are endless possibilities of adventures, trips, and traveling that could be done if we all had our very own airplane. What would my plane look like? Colors, style, patterns? Who would I bring with me? Where would I go first? I might have to start taking pilot lessons!!
