During week two gramma taught Austin and Grampa how to cut stencils from repurposed packaging, cardboard and transparencies. They then spray painted the newly converted cruiser skateboard.
The second week was arting time with Gramma. First we went to Michael's and bought a few supplies. Then we researched some images of the new Mr BB robot from the new star wars film. Then I taught Austin how to use transfer paper to break out the separate colors to various craft papers. He then pasted the papers to canvas using acrylic paint medium as an adhesive. Afterward he painted in shadow with blue muted acrylic paint. He added line details with sharpie markers, painted the sides of the canvas orange then sealed it all with acrylic matte medium.
His last night in SacTown we saw the new star wars flick, went to an art show and ate Chinese food...
Over all I think Austin had a good vacation with Gramma Patti and Grampa Jeff doing fun projects, learning cool stuff and going fun places.
