Today, we took turns rotating around the room from turtle to turtle. Each table had 15 minutes to draw their turtle before rotating to the next.
Since I never named the turtles, the class decided to name them for me. The snapping turtle's name is now Cupcake....

We drew contour line drawings of our hands... we drew blind contour line drawings of our hands... we even had a "draw hands" homework assignment... Enough contour line drawings of our hands!!
So today, we took out some tempera paint and painted animals on our hands based on our sketchbook drawings.
Here are few...

The After Art Jeep that once prowled the streets of Apex, NC is no more. AA Jeep took her last ride to the dealership where she was traded in (for a good price).
A new jeep was purchased with big honken tires! .... but don't get your hopes up. It's too new to paint... (just yet)
bye AA Jeep!!

The one project by far that I receive the most requests asking, "How'd you do that?" is the Post It Note Mural.
In this lesson you will find images and a description of the process we used to complete these projects. There is also a link to a video that demonstrates the process.
The entire process is available for free!
Later you can use the same lesson to create a mosaic out of any material including Skittles, Jelly Beans,or color swatches. We even used it to create a mosaic of the Mona Lisa using over 2,000 balloons!
No matter what the media, the basic concept is the same. Start by creating an image map that uses the same colors as the object (Post-it Notes, balloons, Skittles, etc) that you will use to complete your mural.
This step by step instruction will walk you through the entire process.
