Art Show

My school district hosted a student art show and here are the wonderful works of art created by my first and second grade students.

Colorful Cat

I discovered that I had many water color sets in my art stash that I never use and found an explosion of color that made this colorful cat - well - colorful!

Clay Space

I visited a clay studio for a teachers workshop and created a hand built textured clay mug and a hand built leaf bowl that were glazed and fired in a kiln. I love working with clay and haven't had the opportunity to create with that kind of clay in YEARS - really a life time ago so this was just the best - loved it!

Lace was pressed into a clay slab to create the texture then cut to form the mug.
