Grace and Peace, my friends!
We had a Lock In this past Fri-Sat, and it was an absolute blast. We stayed up all night, played games, ate great food, had awesome fellowship, and made some really cool tshirts. We played glow in the dark strobe light dodge ball. I know, it sounds confusing, and it was...but it was fun. We also attempted to make bubble gum sculptures, but they ended up being just large blobs of chewed gum. Mmmmm, yum. We played a bunch of other games, Catch Phrase, watched a movie, played xbox, etc....
The coolest part of the evening, though, for me, was making the tshirts. We had 5 designs that were created by Catherine Collins, Taylor Jackson, Jack Moore, Katie Law, and Paula Bowers. Paula made screens from sheer material and old wooden picture frames. The designs were traced onto the screen, and then a blocking agent was painted on the screen. Finally we screen printed our own shirts by squeegying paint through the screens. They turned out incredible.
If you weren't able to come to the lockin and you want your own tshirt, come to EYC @ the Art Shack on Mar 29. We will be taking orders for purchase from the parish in the very near future. Check out the pics:
