Young People's Exhibit

I entered 3 of my student's works of art into the Young People's Art Exhibit sponsored by Oklahoma's Art Education Association, and one of my student's made this photo montage for me! Kailee is the one standing in front of the Van Gogh-esque painting.

Snowmen Continued

I have a really hard time narrowing it down...especially when I remember to take my camera out!

We made this the week before Christmas. ( We watched Frosty the Snowman while making them.) It is a great project to get kids excited about vacation, but keeps them quiet while making some awesome artwork:-) "Snowdan the Snowman"- cute, huh?

We won't be doing the typical tessalation art work like MC Escher is most famous for, we will be doing more of a grid type illusion. Results to come.
