Workshop April 2012

I conducted an Art workshop to show and teach kids about decorating small clay pots and turning them into pieces of art. I enjoy doing this myself and here are some of my works in this area.
The idea was to show them how to use their imagination and creativity using colorful fabric paints, glitters, colorful ribbons and other decorative things. It was a lot of fun – work, play and good food :), looking forward to conducting the next one!
So here’s how it all went down in pictures.  You can click on the thumbnails to see larger images.
