Se7en + 1 Went ArtJamming…

May 15th, 2013 · 10 Comments

I know – some folks are braver than others… I am not sure that I would invite this gang over to paint my walls…

We were unable to drag the youngest artist away from his brushes for a photo!!!

But the new ArtJamming Stall at the Paddocks in Milnerton knows no fear and invited us over on Saturday… Some of us couldn’t put our aprons on fast enough!!!

One person was a little timid to get going… but don’t even ask what he has been doing with the tooth paste, since he has discovered the art of mural painting!!!

Other folk had no fear of the wall and literally dove in…

And so the transformation began…

Way up high…

Icy tea…

A whole new adventure… Bos Tea…

And judging from all the empty cans… I sense it was a hit all-round!!!

It took a couple of hours…

And a heap of busy-ness…

IMG_4639

And just a little bit of mess…

DSC_0576

And some cleaning up…

DSC_0567

The walls were covered…

And I day say the art was Jammed…

    What a fabulous way to spend a day. Am I the only one wishing I could have a go, as well?

    Cheryl, it started off fairly quiet with a couple of kids and the parents standing around… and then slowly but surely everyone was painting everything!!! I can’t imagine that there is even one white piece of wall anywhere in the store!!! You definitely aren’t alone!!!

    Hay Aunty Muffin, It really was fabulous!!! Hope you have a great week!!!

    We’ve been to do canvasses at the Cavendish one and I was amazed at how long my boys spent taking such care. Art Jamming is very cool! Seeing your adventure though, I think we’re going to have a go at painting our garage…. inside that is!

    Hay Debbie… I have a feeling that a lot of garages are going to be transformed this winter… I know ours is… we just need an endless supply of their fabulous paint… Can you imagine!!! Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous day!!!
