If it hasn't been clear from my last two posts...this past weekend was BUSY. On Saturday afternoon Cate and I attended a mom and me art class with 3 of my fellow teachers and their children.
They started out by playing with some puppets.
Then they moved onto story time (with some cool art books). Afterwards, it was time to create. Each kid got a hunk of clay that they rolled flat with a rolling pin. They then used various objects and tools to make all kinds of textures on the clay.
Cate was in heaven. When they had a bunch of textures on the clay, they painted it with glaze. Finally (with help from all of the mommies), the kids cut their clay and made fish shaped dishes.
The remaining time was spent cleaning up and drawing on easels.
While this class was a one-time special thing, the art studio does weekly mom and me classes. I think Cate and I are going to do them on Saturday afternoons this fall. We'll get Cate's finished fish dish back next week, so I'll be sure to share it with you all.
