    • Encourage creativity and experiment with different art techniques and supplies
    • Provide a flexible program open to all ages and skill levels
    Landscape Art
    • Supplies
      • sand
      • glue
      • paint
      • scrap paper
      • regular paper
      • cleaning supplies
    • Resources: Print outs and books of aerial photography
    Project: Sand Art (with shells)

    • Sand, shells
    • Thick paper - recycled cardstock and/or construction paper, paper plates, pencils
    • Plastic tubs, spoons (dixie cups b/c someone took a bunch of my spoons)
    • Glue sticks, glue

    • April 2022
      • We used just the sand art portion for our school visits. The basic supplies are sand, glue, thin cardboard, and a large plastic bin. The kids use markers from their classroom to draw a pattern or picture, trace it in glue, then place it in the tub, hold out their hands, and I pour sand in their hands for them to sprinkle onto it. Be prepared for much glue.
    • 3-6-18
      • Attendance: 20
      • Notes: Sigh. This program has really died off. Kids loved doing it, but it was just a handful of participants. Plus I had nothing to cover the tables so it was a little more messy than usual.
    • 7-31-14
      • Attendance: 58
      • Connections/Feedback: Talked to parents about making art with kids - it's ok for them to make something too!
      • Notes for the future
        • 7-31-14: Small tubs of sand are perfect - a few left over and enough for everybody.
        • 9-26-13: Used leftover colored sand and shells. Kids really like to just mix it all up, so it's not worth buying the sand in bulk.
