Art-Nature-Mindfulness Camp: Day 5

June 16, 2017

Our last day together has arrived! Today was filled with finishing our projects and completing our week of pebble meditation. 

 Day 5:

 

*Sun Print Tapestry Embroidery*

 

 

The campers excelled at using real needles to create their own embroidery designs.

 

 

 

*Pebble Pouch Necklaces*

 

 

We added necklace strings to our painted pebble meditation pouches so that we can carry them with us wherever we go!

 

 

 

*Habitat Construction Completion*

 

 

Finishing our habitats required us to be focused!

 

 

Some chose a night sky as their habitat. 

 

Our recycled puzzle boxes were the perfect homes for our campers' creations!

 

 

*Nature Walk*

 

We were so busy with finishing our projects that we had to take a shorter nature walk today. But that didn't stop our new friends from enjoying the stroll! 

 

 

*Insect Mandalas*

 

 

We painted wooden disks with watercolors for our backgrounds!

 

Then we used permanent stamps to create patterns on our disks. 

 

 

*Pebble Meditation*

 

Since the weather was absolutely beautiful we concluded our pebble meditation practice outside. Today the campers chose what their new pebble represented. We had pebbles representing love, John Cena, and a shark tooth! 

 

 

*Family Gallery Walk*

 

 

Each camper was given half of a table to show off their artwork. They could arrange their pieces however they chose - however it made sense to them!

 

To say that they were excited would be a complete understatement! They couldn't wait for their families to arrive to their art show!

It's always bittersweet when our camps come to a close. The last day is not only an opportunity for us to review and celebrate what we have accomplished, but also a chance for us to squeeze out as much fun as possible! 

 

Thank you to each of our campers for making our week an artistic adventure!
