Once we all had practiced properly sand raking, we worked with kids from the South Boston Neighborhood House who were around seven and eight years old. They each had picked a design too, and we helped them create those pictures along with unique and spontaneous creations. I was so impressed by the work these children did! They were all so focused, and they really took their time in the hot hot sun to make these designs great. I could tell their counselors were proud, and so were we! It was really a team effort to create such work on the long stretch of beach, and the final product really was phenomenal. One of my favorite things was taking the pictures, because I loved comparing the size of the artwork with the size of the person who created it. The difference was drastic, and it was really like making art that was larger than life! Here is Ryan with his flower. Didn't he do a great job?
Happy week everyone!
