June 12 Slowfire Camp Update

We are having so much fun this week making art, taking field trips, baking, playing music and more!


Ms. Salma and Ms. Metzli have led the children through making ceramic friendship bracelet holders, portrait drawings, T Swift album scrapbooks, crazy coil vessels, and painting/drawing album covers. Today, our oldest students at Grove will try the wheel with Ms. Salma.

Mr Shane and Co with Penny Lane Music have been rocking out with the kids to Taylor Swift! Mr Shane has a full band lineup with guitars, drums, microphones, and keyboard and they have been having a blast playing music.

Slowfire Studios: All About LEGO

Ms Maisie, Ms. Jennifer, and Ms Maliya have worked with the children on pressed lego ceramic plates, lego mazes with marbles, and designing your own LEGO avatar. Yesterday, they designed their dream home and did some observational drawing. Today, the children will head to the Conservatory and Rehm Park, followed up with making papier mache Lego Pinatas!
