Creating some serious competition, Brooklyn style!

What better way could you think to spend your Saturday than making piñatas with a bunch of half pints in Brooklyn?

That was my sentiment exactly when a few months back my good friend Rachel Eisley asked if I´d bring my piñata expertise out for two Saturday classes and teach a class at her summer camp at the Ocean Hill Art Sanctuary in Bushwick/Bedstuy.

The theme for this years camp is portraits so we focused our designs around such creating the paper mache heads and decorating. I have to admit, there were some seriously creative designs! Check them out below, or come by their art opening at the end of August.
Amber's Cat was amazing!
Ahmari's Dragon was pretty stellar!
Bahiyyah's little princess was adorable!
Ohmar not only was a huge fan of the glue gun, but he loved Sonic the Hedge Hog too!!
