One day last week Aidan brought in a tshirt, white pants, and sneakers. He asked everyone to write or draw on these clothing items so everyone did. Later in the week, Aidan wore the outfit to school. So, that's what's happening with that.
Speaking of Aidan... he's been working on a series of small drawings and then combining the images into one large image. each squre is 7" x 7" so the finished work is rather large. The images used represent things from his life he deems important or not important. Its sort of like a self portrait.
Meanwhile, Gavin brought in a canvas and has been experimenting with paint pouring. He's been interested in the cells that one might find in a more traditional paint pour but is also interested in the drip style produced by having the canvas on the easel as opposed to having it flat on the table.
Kimber finished her sword that she had been working on. It was constructed out of cardboard and foam, then wrapped in plaster gauze to give it support. Painting added the finishing touches.
This set of photos is from a rare occurrence that only happens on special occasions. Everyone in the room was working! Lol! OK I'm half kidding but sometimes teaching art is more like herding cats. Having those rare days when all the cats are focused deserves its own post ;)
Then this happened.
