GMG Kid’s Art Project

Since my daughter at thirteen often tells me to grow up I consider my entering some art in the GMG Kid’s Art Project not entirely out of bounds. You might give me grief recycling Peeps in my art project but peeps are the gift that just keeps on giving. OK, trying to fill my 2PM slot each day I am totally tapped. So I took a magic marker and …

But wait there’s more. I also purchased Hipstamatic which Sharon mentioned as a cool tool for the iPhone. So I am combining GMG Art Project, GMG Recommendations for software, and some wicked stale peeps which have now been recycled so many times they are almost environmentally sound. Actually, I have them soaking in the sink and I might have to use my new Ingersoll Rand 121 Super Duty Air Hammer to get my plate back so not sure how environmentally sound they are. I might have to hide them in my trash bag at the Rockport Dump or they are going to charge me twenty bucks for commercial concrete disposal. I don’t even want to think about fire hazard or waiting until hazardous waste day to unload my peeps. If that happens they are going back up on the wall.

ps. I mentioned in an earlier post to get down to Shaws on Eastern Ave for a fire sale on post Easter Peeps but I was too late. They have replaced all things Easter with Boogie Boards, diving masks and snorkels in that last aisle across from the milk. They did have some chocolate peeps in the discard shopping carts in the middle of the aisle but someone had already scored the last of the marshmallow peeps. (Fess up.) So I combine a “Signs of Spring” of Boogie boards at Shaws. (Don’t worry I am making a list and will recycle all signs of spring once Rockport puts Mr and Mrs Bathroom sign up at the Info booth which is my sign of the end of spring beginning of summer.)


Come to think of it I am going to do one more burn of brush before the May 1 deadline. My brush pile is a tad damp. Do you think I could use my Plate O’ Peeps as a fire starter? If you hear the fire horns this Saturday you might know why.

GMG Kid’s Art Project

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Hey, how could I contribute something for the pages of GMG?”

Well there are many ways, you could always join the GMG Flickr Group Pool and add pictures there like many folks have done.  You could send in a self-stamped and addressed envelope for a GMG sticker and take pictures on your travels for use here on our pages with Da Sticka.

You could send in uplifting stories from around town for us to share.

But now we have another way to get your kids involved (or if you are a big kid feel free to participate).

The GMG Kid’s Art Project!  The premise is pretty simple.  You know those rainy days that we are bound to have all through the spring?  The ones where your kids are climbing the walls?  Have your kids draw a picture and somehow incorporate the Letters GMG or Good Morning Gloucester.  Take a picture of it and send it in.  I’ll post them as they come in and make a slide show with the names of the young artists on each picture.

It could be a picture of anything as long as it has GMG or Good Morning Gloucester clearly visible on it.  Pictures of Lobsters, Seagulls, the Man at The Wheel, A Beach Scene, A Fish- Anything.

How fun would that be?

If there are any art teachers who are looking for art projects for their class I’d love to have entire classes of school kids have their stuff represented and we could post them and give the teachers some props as well!  David and Dawn at Art Haven- I’m talking to you too!  I know you have the cameras and I know you have the kids there.  Bobby Viau-you listening?

The one below was from niece Amanda Mohan to give you an idea of what I’m talking about.
