Here come my girls running to the studio. I get warm hugs making my day! We started class off by working in their journals. We were making a background for the word – “Gratitude.” I was hinting at the definition by saying it was a word used at a holiday – they guessed all sorts of seasons – fall, summer etc. Soooo I had to make clear the difference between a season and a holiday. The girls made a gratitude list in their journal. Then I learned that Teddy Roosevelt didn’t shoot bears!!!! Not real sure where that came from by it was very informative. I didn’t know that! We looked at Kurt Schwitter – one of the first artists to use “text” in an artwork – a collage. Then we proceeded to work on their collages. They are coming along really cool. The collages will be 11×14 and will only need a frame. The young artists added texture with paste and all sorts of printing with different items. Hope everyone has a grand weekend. Can’t wait to hear the big news Monday, Audrey!
