This summer, I signed Zack up for three camps. So far, his favorite hands-down has been his day camps at The ClayBakers. Rather than do a full week of camp, he goes for a random six days throughout the summer for a couple of hours to do a specific project. He's loved it.
One project this summer was glass fusing. Of course, the teacher did the actual slumping and kiln action, but Zack put together his own piece. And here's what he made.....
Zack is six. And I couldn't be prouder.
I am so hoping that his love of art -- all kinds of art -- continues throughout his life. We have a craft closet to rival any store, and Zack has experimented with everything from paint to oil pastels. Obviously, I hope he continues to love glass, because as soon as he's old enough, I want to teach him how to make beads. He's already telling me that he doesn't want to go to college but wants to go to art school, but only if I go with him, and I have to say, I'd love to go! There is so much I'd love to learn, so much YET to learn.
The future this boy has. He amazes me every day.
