Happy February

Its almost the end of February. I'm a little late on posting my Valentines projects.
It's second winter break and I thought I would get so much accomplished!  We all have been there. The anticipation of time off... all the things I'll  get caught up with. I'll have extra time to work in my studio. Maybe I'll even get some yard work done. Well... where did the week go. I did get a lot of things done, but not nearly the time a would have loved to spend in my studio.
But the yard looks a little better.
(In the North West, one needs to to advantage of a dry day)

Up Up And Away
Happy Valentines Day

Water color paper as the back ground.
Kids cut out water color paper hearts. I took a photo of each child reaching up to the sky.
The following week, when everything was dry. We assembled our Valentine project.
Hearts, string, and a cut out of each student. What fun!

Any time I incorperaite a self photo into the kids art, they love it. Lots of smiling faces.

I have 33 kids in my after school program. 3 classes a week. I had 6 kids out with sickness.
So I drew silhouettes for the returning kids to color them selves in.
