I've been alternating the kinds of projects I'm doing- first we discuss what they want to do and I create a project around that while choosing an art skill to emphasize. For this month, they wanted to do something on Mythical creatures, so I had them create a creature of their choice and design an environment for it. The paper I gave them was broken up into comic book panels and we were focused on telling a story with pictures.
And here's how they turned out- VERY cool, I think!
Leila did a fairy......
and Colson chose a dragon.....
Then for the "me" project, I chose to focus on art history that was also a nod to their LOVE of gold! We did swirly trees and concentric circles and a brief study on Gustave Klimt and his style. I love this project, have done it many times and no matter what, it always turns out gorgeous!
I guess you can tell I like gold too?
And voila! A masterpiece!
I think that's more than enough from me for one day! I have been doing my own painting (a little ;)) plus cooking for the Farmer's Market and I have fall flowers waiting to go in te ground...I can't believe it's October! And you know what tat means? The next art projects will be Halloween- oh yeah!
xx for now,
