July 31, 2011--I am... a Cardboard Box, cont'd

So, I am still trying to figure out the "ins-and-outs" of blogging and once I uploaded the photos to the last post, I couldn't figure out how to write about what's going on in, this post.

Today Matt and Amy (Wilmer and Edith's parents) helped us make cardboard box houses/police stations/secret agent headquarters/etc. The kids loved it! Sarah and I loved it. These will proudly be displayed in our art show, The Ritual of Play (September 3).

Any unfinished buildings can be finished next week (or the next, or the next, or the next, but not the next).

After Sunday School and the service, many of us enjoyed a delicious POT-LUCK lunch in the fellowship hall where the "I Am" photo station is located. There, we wrote a word or words to describe what we are (or what we think we are). This photo project (thanks, Ben Oliver!) will be an ongoing project. After the visitors of the art show have a chance to participate (yes, you still have time to become a face in our "I Am" stop-motion video), we will create a STOP-MOTION VIDEO inspired by Open Table's great idea.

So, here's a sneak peak of the video and a peak into the kids and their buildings.

Peace and Love, friends.

Creating Summer Art

Here are some pictures of the creative minds at work! This summer, we are creating art from the materials we find in the closet, around the house, and in the recycling bin. We've managed to not buy anything for the art show! We are also creating based on ritual and repetition--the art show will be called The Ritual of Play (September 3 at DPC).
