Art Camp Day Four


We started this morning with a shower – we needed to dampen and ink a large sheet of paper before the group arrived. We thought a few spots of rain might help, but it didn’t rain.

The rain did stop in time for lunch!


So, it is day four of Art Camp and the group are all involved in personal projects, many coming equipped with objects and ideas to store in their work.
