Kate & abby got their start in the studio this week with their visual journals. The artists prepared a background by using chalk pastels and gesso. They then wrote the word “Nurture” on the page and listed ways they take care of themselves – like what they do to relax. Play with pets is the number one way the studio as a whole relaxes. Interesting about our furry friends! The girls worked on their collages adding texture with paste and stenciling flowers, butterflies etc. They painted the fruit for the still life. We’ll add highlights to the fruit next week by printing all sorts of odds and ends in Ms. Ronda’s collage box. Hope everyone has a grand Thursday. It’s almost the weekend! Super weather out there too!
