“The rainbow is so pretty.  It’s a little TOO pretty!”

On a recent sunny day, Stephanie noticed that the sun reflecting off of her sequined shirt created rainbows all over the Studio!  Friends were infatuated by these rainbows and asked if we could fill the Studio with rainbows that could be seen on non-sunny days.  We took photos and videos of the rainbows that Stephanie was casting throughout the Studio, so that I could share them with children from different art groups to help get them on board with this BIG project! (I wasn’t able to load the video’s here, unfortunately!)

Children began searching for rainbow materials and stringing them on to wire.  Once we had enough strands for our rainbow, we had Mr.Jeff help us install them so they could hang over our tables!

The following week, children began making charms to hang from the rainbow.  Friends strung and painted wooden beads, wove in fabric and threaded pom-poms.  Once finished, children picked the perfect spot on the rainbow for their charms to go!
