Making fake food with WIKKI STIX!

I was so excited when I found these pictures today(when I was of course looking for something else). To go along with our Wayne Theibaud lesson, I had my Art Club students make fake food from Wikki Stix! They were so cute!  This was from a couple of years ago, but I am pretty sure you can still buy them.  I also found some Bendaroos, which are the same thing...but I got a box of 500 on clearance at Wal-Mart for $5. I sure do wish I could luck up on that again!

I thought they were just so dang cute!  The best part was, they were able to complete them in one sitting, they don't have to dry, and they don't have to paint them!  Hooray for a one day project!

Colorful Owl Pastel Drawings

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. This is what I came up with- I took it to school, and the kids went wild. I don't know if it was the color, or the glitter, or what, but they BEGGED to make one. They did a great job. I believe these are from the third graders- Pretty cute, huh?

Romero Britto Inspired Walking Horses

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...
