My children were amazed at the incredible things people were making with the simplest of tools. Our
first stop was the “Amazing Human Powered Art Machine” which is a bicycle that has been remade into a human powered spin art machine.

It is powered by a person sitting on the bike and peddling to create a rpm of 5000 to 10000, which is enough to produce dazzling spirals and streaks as the paint is squirted onto the paper.

The adults and children stood outside a safety shield. Then using squirt bottles filled with different colors of paint, they created their little pieces of spin art.

They came out very different from one another. As you can guess, it was a challenge to get my kids to leave this fun kids craft workshop.

There were quite a few homeschool parents attending the event. They were stocking up on art supplies and gathering new ideas for their own kids homeschool art projects. It was a weekend filled with great opportunities for everyone to try new products and techniques, as well as stock up on much needed art supplies, crafting supplies and other related products.
We would love for you to share your experiences at any local “Arts & Crafts” shows that you have attended What was your favorite technique or workshop?
