Got started this morning with a gust of Lori 16mm, who came by to create marvelous
stenciled artistic creations on clothing,
filling up the reserves for 3 weeks from now when the Art-Hungry Populace comes to Ye Olde
Junk-a-Thon!

With finesse and furious pizazze, she filled up one+ clothesline with wearable art.  Chad and I made some, too.

Then, with batch #1 drying, spray paint cans were removed and additional supplies were found in preparation for the kids’ Art Class.

Not long after school let out across the street, Patrick, Marina, and Jennifer showed up to learn how to make Stencil Art!  I demonstrated the process, from finding a surface/cloth, to choosing a stencil or a flattish object, to applying paint, and hanging to dry.  Marina and Jennifer worked nonstop for an hour on all sorts of colorful designs; Patrick made a new stencil, of the letter “P”, with the help of Chad, who also took these photos:

So, pretty good format for a day.  Maybe we can get someone to come help do screenprinting on another Monday?

If not that, we’ll definitely be at work again next Monday, perhaps on the first mortar-and-object collage.

And Saturdays!  The Quilt-Sewing gatherings must start!  I think Saturday afternoon might be a good time for me (or maaaybe Monday nights).  We’ll just get together, share our sewing skills, design a quilt, work on individual picture-squares, and put it all together.  We don’t have to meet every Saturday, just when people don’t have better things to do.

Sundays are our great Clean-up days.  I didn’t get pictures, but there was some fun Boy Scouting type of activities yesterday, as Jeremiah, Patrick and Brer-John explored into the thickets of the backyard and learned about some of the differences between live plants and dead ones.  There just might be a garden sprouting up soon!

P.S.  I am having trouble formatting this page!
