do it. create. walk and see. cut and paste. scratch and sniff.
do whatever you have to do to feed your soul.
this is my commitment.

art class: mapping out the world's wonders


Yesterday we wrapped up the art class series titled Map Making: Exploring Sense of Place Through Art.  We started class on a different note with an exploration and discussion on some of the world's most well known wonders.  We discussed the Great Wall of China, the Grand Canyon, the volcano, Mauna Loa, Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Great Barrier Reef.  After a lot of enthusiastic discussion, the children decided on which wonder they wanted to illustrate.

We used pencils to sketch out our ideas.


We highlighted details of our sketch with pastels and acrylic paints...




and the children were really excited to roll on their watercolor wash.


Art classes will begin, again, on Sunday, April 6.
There will only be two classes in April.
Our subject of study on April 13 will be announced soon.


Visual Journaling has been moved to May!

Happy Art Making!
