I had an absolute blast this past Saturday at Calleva's open house. It was a beautiful day to be on the Calleva Farm, and a fun debut of our Art Inside Out Program. Kids and parents from all over the area were in attendance, coming to explore, ride horses, climb rock walls, and over in our corner of the barn we got to make mail art. Contructed from household packaging (cereal, granola, whatever boxes) we painted, stamped and collaged postcards. Stamps were made from celery hearts, carrots, potatoes, and even bubble wrap. Many ventured and tried the unexpected, using dandelions as paintbrushes. The post cards will be well on there journey tomorrow but, I thought I'd take to opportunity to share today. The kiddo's were wonderful, and I can't wait to see a few at camp again this summer.. I have to admit it was fun watching an adult or 2 jump in, and play as well.
