Art Scouts 2016 – Franklin, TN

I had a super time at Art Scouts hands-on workshop for elementary art teachers, held July 8-9, 2016 in historic Franklin, TN.  I completed 14 projects (clay, weaving, printmaking, weaving, needle felting, painting, collage) which I can immediately use in my arts room back home. Here are some of the fabulous printmaking projects:

Printmaking projects include marker prints, sun prints, Gelli prints and sandpaper prints.

I loved the colorful leaf sun prints. We used watered-down fabric paint and cotton muslin. I found instructions on the Craftiments blog. I never would have tried this own my own…so glad I got to do it at Art Scouts! I will definitely be trying this with my kindergarteners on a sunny (non-windy!) day this year.

It was fun to meet a lot of art teachers from around the U.S. Art teachers really know how to get in the spirit. Check out the fashion:

Art scout fashion: the paint palette hair clip was our needle felting project.

I hope the Art Scouts offer the workshop in the future! I definitely recommend it for elementary art teachers.

Enjoy!
