Such a Busy Summer

We are back for another year of kindergarten.  I hada very busy summer working with Hand In Paw.  Ruby and I were on the go visiting Children's Hospital, Brookwood Hospital, the YWCA, St. Martin's In the Pines, and Hill Crest Behavioral Center.  We also participated in a week long animal camp at the Levite Jewis Community Center.  Wemet lots of wonderful people and worked with some amazing Pet Partner Teams.
I also taught a week long Art Camp at the YWCA with three other art teacher friends.  We spent several days doing clay projects.  Larry Gibson, the are teacher at Pizitz Middle School took three of his wheels there for the children to throw on.  It was on of the best experiences I have ever had working with children.

We did work with oil pastels in the style of Georgia O'Keefe.  We took a lot of natural objects there for the children to use for their inspiration.

The third project of the week was doing aquatic scenes using chalk and acrylics on tar paper.  I found this to be so interesting and fun!!I plan to add this to my classroom art projects.

And little Ruby went with us to the camp each day and had a great time getting all that attention from the children.

It was centainly a summer full of service and fun.
Time to go back to school.  Hope this year is full of learning and lots of fun!!
