Art Camp 1st Day
I am teaching 2 days of art camp in the afternoons this week. On Monday, one of the projects we made were sun tiles. I picked up some glossy ceramic tiles from the hardware store. They looked at a few pictures of Mexican clay suns and they sketched their sun idea on a piece of paper. Then, using pencil and sharpie markers, they drew their sun on the tile. On the back of the tile I superglued a picture hanger. I also sprayed the pictures with a sealant, but I think you could probably leave the sealant off. The ages of the kids were mostly Kindergarten and 1st grade, with a few older kids as well. I love these! A perfect summer project.
