Summertime - my creative energy has shifted to spending time with my own children, teaching art classes, taking photographs and painting when I can carve out quiet blocks of time. :)
In last week's 'Leapin' Lizards' class, students created 2-dimensional drawings and 3-D sculptures.
The enthusiasm of this group was contagious!
One of the boys came in one morning - a huge grin on his face - and said, "I just can't stop smiling!" When I asked him why, he replied, "Because I'm at art class!" Apparently, he was up early, all ready to come... 2 hours before class started. Love it!
Each student chose their own lizard picture to work from and we spent the week observing shapes, creating textures and mixing colors - AND getting our hands all slimy with papier mache!
