RE: art camp

Hi Michelle,

I have alot of new and interesting activities that I have come up with at
the Children's Museum in Las Vegas...if you give me an idea of some
materials you might already have, I might be able to give you a new thing that kids really liked (and parents too) was to
re-create a Jackson Pollock painting...I showed the video of him doing a
drip painting...showing there was a method to his painting instead of just
flinging is is really beautiful and caligraphic...and kids got
to come in and do it for them became a big group painting you could put kid in teams...and have them work together on a
collaboration...maybe? And then display them and critique why there is value
in this kind of abstract art...and how its about the process of making it
and about the history of recording the process of making it...

I'm looking for some ideas for art camp (ages will be 6-7, 8-9, 10-12) that
can be completed in
1 1/2 hrs. I've been doing this for a few years and its always a challenge
to come up with something new. I'd really like to do something jazzy this
year, but my muse is on break! Thanks, Michele

PS for the unusual cleaning supplies thread...TANG is terrific for cleaning
the inside of a dishwasher. A cup of tang run through an empty dishwasher
will make it look brand new. I was amazed.
