A little vintage camper drawing {on stretched canvas} started by a little artist in our workshop creating with six to eight year olds in HANDMAKERY FROM THE HEART: making + creating to give.  Day #1 of a six week workshop, gathering to create once a week!   This project was inspired by HANDMAKERY’S  -{LOVE}-  for vintage + collected + time-worn objects, graced with patina + imperfections + textures + unique colors, that tell a one-of-a-kind story.  We dreamed up this project and envisioned it beginning 2-D, then moving into  3-D, with the addition of mixed media.  Can’t wait to show you how it evolves and gets personalized below!

Discovering vintage colors and developing a color pallet for our vintage camper painting. Think avocado green, bubblegum pink, creamsicle + clementine orange + more.  We LOVED when each little artist shared their specific color scheme, as they were SO excited to create their own combination and very interested in getting the exact wording!
