The visual journals were first on the list of “to do’s” yesterday. The artists painted 2 layers of paint on a page in their journal. They wiped off part of the 2nd layer revealing the first color. They then chose a word from my “word bowl.” The artists stenciled the word on the journal page. They are to write about the word, or draw some images. They were thrilled with the look of the new page.
Abby worked on her palette knife painting. She is almost done with background. Evie, Carly and Sadie worked on a mixed media collage. They continued by drawing the still life subject matter. Next week they will add some texture to the background and some stenciling. These projects are 16×20 and will just need a frame – no glass. They will be done in time for the show. Yippeee! Have a grand afternoon.
