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.

March 4 Weekday Workshop

As our art warm up, the children were asked to create line drawings with white charcoal.  I had arranged a different collection of small items on each table.  Using soft pastels, students were asked to fill the positive space in one of their line drawings and the negative space of the other.

Some of the children continued the study of positive/negative space by choosing a page from a magazine, isolating one image from the page and painting on top of the remaining image.

Our walks to and from the MIA are always different and eventful.  There wasn't a hint of snow on our walk there and, after our visit, we walked outside and back to the classroom with beautiful falling snow!

We spent most of our time viewing the Material Worlds textile exhibit at the MIA.  We were also able to identify other textile work we saw on our walk to the Jane Austen Reading Room.

The next WEEKDAY WORKSHOP is scheduled for Wednesday, March 30 and it is the first full day workshop for The Create Everyday Classroom.  For more information, visit this link.

We also had our first class in a series of Solar System art classes yesterday!

Check April class dates for the next class in this series.
