Spring Break Camp : Cascarones!

Oil and Cotton spent Spring Break making beautiful natural dyed eggs with Natural Dye expert Sarah Westrup. Students learned about the Mexican American tradition of confetti filled cascarones. Empty egg shells were dipped in plant based dye solutions made from hibiscus flower, red cabbage, and red onion skins.
Students learned about value and color mixing with natural dyes in order to achieve our favorite colors. We then filled the eggs with confetti and draped them with tissue paper before the eggs were smashed in celebration for Easter. Visit our website to learn more about our upcoming Summer Art and Music Camps. We would love to share a day of fun, learning, and creativity with you!
