Yesterday, we had our Art Kite Workshop with teachers Ali Fujino and Christine Yuengling! It was a perfect match, with Christine instructing on the art and design aspect of the kites and Ali taking over the engineering of the kites. Ali works with Drachen foundation as a non-profit kite education resource worldwide.
Pictured below is Jerry hanging some of Christine’s art samples for display.
This was part of Christine’s station, where she demonstrated with her monster stencil.
and the class was off to a busy 3 hours creating their pieces of art! The class worked on drawing out their stencils, fingerpainting the backgrounds, painting in their stencil drawings, carving out stamps, and putting together their kites with bamboo and tails.
Look out for another possible Kite event in July with Gloria Stuart!
