Hello Paint Love viewers!
On March 28th, we had the pleasure of hosting a TIE-DYE PARTY with New American Pathways! All the kids received a plain, white t-shirt and created beautiful designs!
This event was led by one of our lead artist, Penny Treese, and her daughter, Gabby. Penny Treese is an encaustic artist. She has volunteered and worked with New American Pathways for almost four years!
Since it was a lovely day and we all know how messy tie-dying is, we did it outside. Gabby showed the kids a simply design to create spirals on the t-shirt. The shirt was sectioned off into four parts and the kids had their pick of any color dyes.
The designs came out amazing!
We then prompted the students to rinse their t-shirts with cold water so the dyes will set.
Even though the kids got dyes all over their hands, it was worth it! Because the messiest projects are the best projects!
