Art Class Masterpieces

In August 2013, I started a whole new adventure.  I volunteered to teach art at my children's school.  Two afternoons a week, I am up at their school, introducing a wide range of children to all different kinds of artists and techniques.  I can honestly say it is one of the most fantastic experiences of my life. 
I'm sorry I missed taking pictures of the fantastic "Braille Paintings" the kids did a couple of weeks ago, but I am making up for it by having pictures of their GORGEOUS vinyl window clings that they created.
We talked about the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, his buildings, furniture, and all the wonderful things he created, including his wonderful stained glass windows, or "light screens", as he liked to call them.
The children in the school either colored in a vinyl cling that already had one of his designs traced onto it, or designed their own using a view from one of the windows of their home as inspiration.
Here are the beautiful, unique results of two weeks worth of work!

Until next week, make sure your sand is always blue.
