I recently signed up for a creative challenge from Mary of http://marymaking.blogspot.com/.
This challenge originated at Created 2B Creative, and part of the idea is to continue it forward, in a creative way. Here's how it works.
- I will create something (I don't know what yet!) for the first three people who say (in the comments below) they would like to participate.
- If you say you would like to participate, you must issue the challenge somewhere (on your own blog, on facebook or twitter -- wherever you want) and personally make something in 2012 (don't wait too long and then forget - I actually would suggest you do it in the next month) for at least three people, who will pledge to make something for three more people . . .
This can be a photograph, something crafty, a small painting or drawing.....anything that uses your creativity.
- If you're one of the first three respondents, send me your address in a private message (my email address is listed on my profile) so that I can mail you my creation.
I have been looking for an excuse to break away and do some of my own art, so let me know if you want to be included!
A piece inspired in memory of my best friend Sara
I was inspired by one of Patty's many great ideas at Deepspace Sparkle: http://www.deepspacesparkle.com/2011/06/04/the-years-best-art-lessons/13-7/
We did the line drawings first and then my students went into detail mode which I loved. They used either colored pencil or oil pastel. Very Cool...Thank you Patty!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! This was my Kindergarten and 1st grade tribute to Dr. Seuss. We read the book and watched the movie trailer. Made a chart with reasons why trees were important then jumped in to save the trees with these easy and fast art piece. We talked about the letter "T" and alliterations. Every time we said a word that began with "T" we said..."Save the Trees". The students loved listening for words that started with "T".
