Moonlit Halloween Nights

The backgrounds were created first starting with a white moon.  Adding a touch of color, a ring was painted around the moon, adding a touch more color for every ring around the moon our color came to a rich solid color.  While these dried students worked on the silhouette they decided on.  The final week glow in the dark paint was added to windows or eyes and sent home for the students to set in the sunlight to cure the glow!


Halloween Door Hangers

Popsicle sticks created our witches, scarecrows, pumpkins, and Frankenstein’s. After gluing the sticks together, students painted their characters.  Once painted, pipe cleaners were glued on to enable hanging on a door.

Halloween Monsters

Our friendly monsters were created with Acrylic paint with the objective was to  fill the page or stretch out past the page.  Those are my favorite.  Here are some of the creations.

Flirty Birds

Here are some birds I have been painting

on small canvasses.  It is a course I signed up for with Jodi Ohl and I have been having so much fun with these flirty birds.

Thanksgiving Turkey!

Well who doesn’t love turkey for Thanksgiving?  This week we created turkeys by painting red, yellow and gold on the underside of leaves then stamping them onto white paper around a drawn circle. Using brown bags, we cut circles for the body, a bowling ball shape for the neck, and a funny shape for the wobble under the yellow beak. Google Eyes were added as well as twigs were broken and made into the legs.  They were so adorable and I can’t believe I did not take one picture, so here is my sample.  Sorry kids!
