All Set Up For My Art Students!
This morning I picked up a few supplies for my art class this afternoon. My students are getting close to being finished. The project for this six week session has been "Elephant Collages" and they have really enjoyed it. I have them all working from the same image (which they traced from an overhead transparency we created from an original photo of mine). Each of their pieces are created with collage patterns and embellishments of their own choice. They have created shadows with pieces of patterned paper. Today they will be adding fine details with paint pens, shading with charcoal, embellishing with buttons, beads, feathers, fabrics and ribbons. Then at the end of class they will frame their piece with a thin line of black puff paint on the edge of the wooded board to keep the gloss from running over the edges. Next week we will be pouring a the high gloss resin onto each piece which will secure all their intricate embellishments and charcoal shading. They have done a fantastic job so far and I will post photos next week of the finished pieces.
