Art in the park.

One of Grace's friends from school asked if we'd like to join them for a morning of "Art in the Park". Without hesitation, we agreed to join them and couldn't have been happier that we did. The park (which the name slips me at the moment) was in Osprey and was right along the bay. You would have never known that it was July due to beautiful breeze that came off the water and all of the shade provided the sprawling oaks.

After a nature walk, where the children learned about the many native plants on the property and collected various leaves, they created their art. They used a gelatin relief printing technique, along with their leaves, to create a design on a tote bag. As you can see from the above photo, Grace arranged her leaves to create an ocean scene.
So there you have it - art in the park!
