Loveart& teamed up with SOY Center and the surf camp sponsor, Volcom to help with their annual week-long surf camp. The way the kids were helping and cheering each other on was inspiring. There is nothing better for us at Loveart& than sharing our love of the ocean with others. Everyone was charging to be sure ! We love SOY ! Can't wait for next year ! xo
Dreamcatchers orginiated with the ojibwe people. Legends speak of the spider woman, known as asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the ojibwe nation spread to the corners of north america and it became difficult for asibikaashi to reach all the children. so the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The dreamcatchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind. once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear. we used repurposed tshirts & beads, found shells and feathers to create our dreamcatchers !

Loveart& visited Culverdale Elementary School in Irvine to teach a class how to make trendy tote bags out of old t-shirts! The children were absolutely brilliant and enjoyed making a useful and personal piece of art out of an old, unwanted t-shirt. The only materials needed were old t-shirts, scissors, fabric paint, spray, some yarn and Shannon’s sewing machine. We always incorporate a way to reuse old, recycled or re-purposed materials to create something new and have fun in the process!The class we visited was a special needs class filled with talented young individuals. The kids were so bright, energetic and full of life! It was amazing to see them come alive when they were given the opportunity to express themselves creatively. We hope to visit Culverdale Elementary again soon in the future. We at Loveart& send a big thank you to everyone for inviting us into your classroom! It was a pleasure making art with you guys !
