Very Very Busy, But Having Fun!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry it's been so long since our last post...just goes to show how busy we've been at camp this summer...

This week, one group of campers has been working on a photography project. After talking about parts and function of an old Canon SLR, looking at books of children and grown-up photographers, writing and sketching ideas, just this morning each child was given their own disposable film camera, and we all set out to photograph the community around us. The negatives are being developed now, and we're all eager to see how the images turn out. In preparation for their 4x5 prints, the children have made simple photo albums/scrap books out of paper and yarn, to be assembled with the pictures tomorrow morning.

There are so many other awesome projects being created all throughout Kidstreet this week, such as the large-scale clay work done by Gary and Brian's class, and the monotype prints in Amanda's class. In fact, camp this summer has been so popular, we've decided to add a whole extra week! If you'd still like to sign up for next week, check availability at Lillstreet's front desk.

We hope to be posting more pictures on our Flickr site of this week's fun activities.
(Remember, there's a link to Flickr on the right hand side of this page).

Thanks for reading,
