Bubbles and Clay, Oh My!
Last week in La Conner, the kids had a great time participating in Clay Tech and creating abstract bubble art.
In our Clay Tech program, Club members used modeling clay to create and design characters for their animated shorts. The members have been thinking outside of the box lately and have started using many different materials for their set designs like soda bottles, cardboard and even battery powered LED lights.
The Boys & Girls Club of La Conner is excited to offer Clay Tech and other Club Tech Programs for our Members ages 6-18 thanks to the generous support of the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community. Thank you Swinomish Indian Tribal Community for providing this valuable educational opportunity to our Members.
Club Members’ abstract bubble art was done outside, so they could take in this beautiful spring sunshine! To get started, the members had to add a little bit of food coloring to bubble containers. Next they each blew bubbles onto their sheets of paper and as the bubbles popped, they created some great patterns. Members used different sized bubbles and wands to create one of a kind masterpieces.
The Fine Arts Exhibit program in La Conner encourages artistic expression among Club members ages 6-18 through drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, mixed media and sculpture while providing opportunities for members to create artwork for display in a local exhibit.
The Fine Arts Exhibit program runs every day from 2:30-5:00 p.m. For more information on upcoming art projects or any other Targeted Programs at the La Conner Club, please contact Arts Coordinator Jeff Mariott or Program Director, Leah Vazquez at (360) 466-3672.
