Here are some of the snakes the DK, K and 1st graders did last week. The DK used markers on theirs, and the others painted. I thought they were adorable! They can't wait to take them home...
The Model Magic was great for the kids to use as far as being mess free and easy to mold. The only problem was that some of them broke apart after they dried. The consistency is like a marshmallow, but the kids said "This sure doesn't smell like a marshmallow!"
Here are some of the first graders works
Last year, I attended the Create 2012 conference in Murfreesboro, TN. Several of the teachers from my town attended, and it was great. My favorite class was one on drawing animals, and the class description said something about being "based on the style of Laurel Burch". Well, since I am a big fan of hers, mostly because of all the things she had to overcome in life, I attended. The lady was so sweet, but basically she showed us her work, and let us have at it. That was fine with me! I was ready to just make something. Having an obsession with owls, which dates back to the 70's when they were first in style, I naturally chose to draw one.

Pretty cute, huh?
In honor of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, the students have started creating their Romero Britto inspired horses. I think they are awesome! When they finish the Horse, they will work on the background. These are works in progress...
