Last weekend I was given the opportunity to put together a workshop table for kids at the Echo Park Craft Fair. I loved the challenge of coming up with a project that would be engaging for ages ranging from 2-10 and maybe even a few older kids. It also needed to be flawlessly beautiful to match the incredible talent from the artisans selling at the fair.
I always believe if you start with beautiful materials the chances are the outcome will also be gorgeous. Relishing in the idea of gathering families around to make artworks we created two projects in honor of Mother's Day, a bold, colorful painted fabric banner and a small token of love with a message spool.
The fabric watercolor paintings gave the kids an opportunity to investigate painting in a process oriented way. Using droppers and q-tips instead of paint brushes gave them a new way to explore the familiarity of paint.
Thank you to all who stopped by to create with us.
