Monday is probably the worse day of the week to have a birthday. It’s not right to celebrate before the event, and the weekend seems so far away …… Anyhow, I decided I would take a few fairy cakes to the Art Cabin to share out and Lyn bought some scrummy chocolate for us to nibble while we spent the morning preparing for the art club and collating all the information necessary to enter The Big Draw Competition. The prize money (if the Art Cabin was selected) would pay for so much equipment which is dearly needed if the proposed projects (printing, paper-making, mosaic, clay work, to name but a few) are to go ahead.
So this week, the Tudor portrait and MacBeth costume collages progressed. There is more ‘BLING’ on those pictures than Liberacé and Mr T put together. The Tudors would have been proud!
The after school club was very relaxed, quite a few children were absent, so the noise level was considerably reduced. The children learned about shading and midtones and finished their fantasy castle pictures.
The fairy cakes were a hit with the children and I did have a nice birthday!
