Kaylie turned 10 and wanted to celebrate with an artists canvas painting party. She picked the owl subject matter and the colors, and invited 10 friends. They all did an amazing job, and had a lot of creative fun.

A fun time was had by all, and everyone was so creative. It's funny how we think there's no way we can do this or be creative, or draw a straight line for that matter, but until we try we don't realize our hidden abilities. I hope everyone can discover some things they are quite capable of but didn't know it.

Fifth graders finished these Statue of Liberty pictures with the New York skyline behind them. They used markers colored pencils sharpies and watercolors and collagedthe Statue of Liberty on in front. We also learned how the statue was made and fund raised for and brought here to United States as a gift from France. The understructure was actually designed by Gustav Eiffel who also designed the Eiffel Tower.

We have been discussing still life's and Henri Matisse. I love the bright colors and patterns that Matisse puts in his still life's. Second and third graders made a collage vase with tissue paper and markers, and drew and cut out and collaged flowers to go in the vase and set them on a printed table.
My school is fundraising, so the student artists are glazing ceramic pots, ice cream bowls to sell and buy. We have been glazing and doping all week. No love the muted colors of the U fired glazes, and also the shiny brights of the finished pieces as well.

Spring to me is a time of the year when everything is fresh and new. I love to look up in the tree and see the green buds, and new leaves filling out. I love listening to the birds chirp in the warmth of the sunlight. These things inspire me to get out the paper scraps, vintage images, paint and anything else I think might go with Spring. Things such as peat pots, Easter grass, bunnies, birds, eggs, mini-flowers and greenery, help to capture this time of year.
For this little nest project, I used a peat pot that I had gotten a dozen of at the dollar store. I painted the pot white, and then embellished it with vintage lace and a button with jute tied through it. I then collaged some scrapbook paper prints and grass with a bunny image I had from a vintage Easter card. (see page), I also collaged together the letters NEST and wrapped them around a piece of string and tied them to pipe cleaners to make the banner across the top. I glued it all together with a hot glue gun, and added Easter grass and some small silk florals in the front to make the nest Springy.

We are getting all of our collaborative group artwork together for an art auction coming up next week. This one was by 3rd graders. Each of the painted and decorated a heart that was collaged onto printed Valentines papers and collaged together in a square grid.
6th graders were inspired by MVP Mike Trout for this group project. They each illustrated something Trout or Angel, then they were collaged together to make a mosaic.
Also, 6th graders did a similar collage to the Angel one. Seen here is #24 all things Kobe Bryant.
Strips of patterns were used to create this deer illustration. The students each designed a strip of patterns, and then each pattern was collaged onto the shape of the deer head.
Our theme verse for the year, Psalm 133:1 was used to illustrate this picture of bird houses with their occupants all living together in unity in one tree. Each student designed a bird house and then collaged it onto the collaged tree. The letters were cut out of magazines and collaged onto the picture.

|Next we cut out the letters, it doesn't matter if they come apart or not.|
Lastly we attached everything onto a primary colored paper with glue and added explosion lines.
