There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million. ~Walt Streightiff
I was informed that I am the best art teacher ever today! And to think I get paid for this stuff, it is quite a trip!
So, the next phase of self portraits is adding the eyes, nose, mouth and hair. Tomorrow is the clothes and background. The background is something that everybody is anxiously anticipating, as the creativity glasses are coming out! The face has very specific directions; the background is going to be wild, a free-for-all! Wily nily choices to be made, the whole rainbow of colors and possibilities. Good times to be had by all!
The Older students have a wonderful start on their portraits! They listened so well and were brave about trying these new techniques. Here is a selection of their work so far:
|3rd, 2nd, 2nd grades|
|1st, 3rd grades|
|3rd grader, above and his work so far, below|
|He thinks this looks like his older cousin, who is one of my star HS students.!|
This one is a little less organized, but joyful! He told me his paint brush did a happy dance on his paper!!! LOL!! Can't wait to see what his background is like!
|Happy dancing paint brush|
Until next time, be exuberant and joyful!
