Teens Nesting Dolls Craft

Last week, teens were using their imaginations to make their own nesting dolls. What is a nesting doll? Nesting dolls are a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed inside the other, like this...

Some teens painted traditional dolls where each one was identical, while others painted different characters from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Garfield, Angry Birds, and Totoro!
Such patience with the tiny paintbrushes.
I was impressed by the artistic talent of those teens who came prepared ahead of time with photos of their subjects, and also those who told me that they just winged it.

In case you missed the memo, Teens, be sure to join us at our upcoming teen programs! Teens(grades 7-12) need to sign up ahead of time, so hurry because space and materials are limited. The calendar for teen programs can be found here.
