We decided to gather for an evening of art making and camaraderie every month. Something artsy. Something to connect us. To each other. To our souls. To the Earth. Last night we made horses and gave some of them to Whitney, who is going to be giving birth any day now. Her little boy will be born in the Year of the Horse. He will have a herd wild horses to remind him of his naturally wild joy. With a mama like Whitney we know he’ll grow up snorting with laughter, jumping with glee and letting his wildness out into the world.
There are so many things you can do with sticks. There are even more things to do with kids to have fun. Combine stick things and kid-things (kids-of-any-age things) and you get even better fun. Today we painted driftwood sticks in colorful stripes and splotches. Tomorrow we are going to turn these sticks into hanging mobile-like sculptures. Check out our summer kid-friendly art project.
