Hens & Chicks

I love this hen and chick project I did yesterday with some kids in the studio!
We did our sketches then transferred them, via a light box, onto heavy weight drawing paper, using a wide Sharpie,
then used oil pastels to color them in.

I think I'll offer this project this week to my younger students.

Giraffe's in the Studio

While trolling around the internet looking for project ideas, I saw a great blog post at That Artist Woman featuring a giraffe wax resist project. We tried it on Wednesday and my students loved it. Maia, Cecil and Annie all knocked my socks off with their interpretations. The harmony in the studio was wonderful and we worked steadily for a few hours, only to stop for a jump on the trampoline and a fresh fruit smoothie.
