Mothers Day

  We made the most beautiful self portraits for Mothers Day. I wanted to keep them all.... We were asked to display them at Arts Night, but there were some tears because then they wouldn't be surprises... so we kept them in our classroom.

I can't show the whole images, but here are some parts.

First we made neutral coloured collages on cardstock.
Then we added a few pieces of coloured paper. We tried to use strategic placement, so the face wouldn't be obliterated. We also tried to balance the colours around the page.
Then we layered a transparency over the top and finally we stitched it all together using the sewing machine (student steered and I used the foot pedal). This was a really fun project. We will be using the sewing machine again in the near future.....

Arts Night

We explored Kandinsky
Kandinsky once stated that the circle was the perfect form....
(please click on the photos -- they look fabulous blown up!)

We cut circles (freehand!):

We painted circles:

We painted, then did weavings on circles:


We hope that you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed making them!!
