recycled art

Art4All 2014

I am SOO exhausted. I was at school for more than 12 hours every day since Thursday.  And I don’t think I sat down for more than 5 minutes at a time for all those hours. My feet feel like I’ve just done an 8 hour shift at Maccas (that was a long time ago).  And now it’s all over for another year. Everything went very smoothly. Hooray. The weather was great. The food was delicious. The art was super.  Everyone did so much!

Here’s some things I made (jewellery, dish cloths, salad servers) and some bits and pieces (including those boxes and my mannequin) put to good use in the shop.

The ARTzone was full of kids being creative all day Sunday.  I think this is my favourite part of Art4All.  Here’s some recycled art … build your own rocket ship in the construction room.

And some detail from Van Gogh’s Dot Room from Sunday afternoon.  It went from white to very colourful.  And I think there are still 1000+  dots for the kids to stick up at school this week … I like Yoyo’s signature … I wrote LEA in there too, but it didn’t look as cool as her name!

For me the show, Cirque Disarray was a real highlight. The actors fromBorn in a Taxi were just lovely to deal with and I laughed from the beginning to the end of the show.  I had sore cheeks from laughing so much! Especially as Clive, India and Hamish all got starring roles.
