Summer Art Camp plus crabby haiku

Instead of buying candy I been saving my allowance for Summer Camp Carla Sonheim’s Summer Art Camp.  As you might have guessed by now I LOVE Carla, her classes and emphasis on having fun with art.  The first camp assignment is drawing 3 crabs (better than 12 princes!) with non-dominant hand and then a water-color of sea shells (to come).

Deep Fried Crab Haiku

Used to be hard-shelled

Age has marinated me

Now I’m a softy*

 

*Soft-shell crab is a culinary term for crabs which have recently molted their old exoskeleton and are still soft.[1] This means that almost the entire animal can be eaten, rather than having to shell the animal to reach the meat.[2] The exceptions are the mouthparts, the gills and the abdomen, which must be discarded.[3] The remaining, edible part of the crab is typically deep fried.[2] Wikipedia

  1. I bought one of her books last year, The Art of Silliness. I think it’s great that she puts such emphasis on the “fun” part. That seems to get lost for many of us when we become adults. Glad you’re enjoying the classes.

  2. Now you have me wondering what my non dominant hand art would look like. I may have to look into her classes at some point. It sounds like fun.
