August Break – Days 1 & 2

August Break is here again…join in the fun here.

The first few days of August have been pretty busy for me.  I had company over the weekend then after dropping them at the airport Monday morning, jumped into a bit of craziness.  In addition to taking and teaching pilates, this week I am holding an art camp for girls at the pilates studio.  I expected 3 girls but at 2pm on Monday, had 5.  I am in no way an art teacher but I love art and am excited to work with 10 & 11 year old girls.

Some of the things I’ve realized so far about these girls:

  • they can be super focused…I thought kids had a short attention span
  • they are all really creative
  • they have all created completely different artwork
  • they can easily give themselves a compliment and can take them too
  • I thought I was going to have things to teach these girls, but I think I may learn more than they do.
We still have two days of camp left….I just hope I have enough paint to keep them busy.

    I’ve always fancied running some sort of art camp. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than working with children who want to learn because they are enjoying what they are doing.
