Getting down and dirty!
We got invited to Crazy Carl aka Carlsbad aka Carly's Open Studio day. She taught (just like she does her students) to make a hollowed out pumpkin!
He's being a good listener, opening up his clay to match Miss Carly's example.
In this shot the light catches his face just right. Almost like God is reminding me how lucky I am to have him in my life. My bunny is so smart!
Smacking out any imperfections.
While waiting on his project to harden a bit, he made Mr.Gru from Despicable Me! He draws really well too! I think he got it from his mama ;)
He's now making impressions to finish his pumpkin. I will be posting a photo of the finish project when its glazed and fired!
Now for my favorite part! The wheel! I took Ceramics in High School and it was such a fun and artistic activity. Jude hates being dirty but he was into it!
Some of Carlys students who are at least 10 years older than Jude were impressed by his skills for a first timer. He owned the place!
With Tia Carly's help, he started to open up his cup!
I was so proud of him! He behaved well, and took direction even better! I am so blessed to have so many opportunities to share these creative lessons with my son. Art is amazing and so is my little boy!
