Tamsin Abbott inspired foxes

This week our students have made their own scratch-boards using oil pastels and acrylic paint. Inspired by Tamsin Abbott, a new favorite artist of Mary’s. The students have made foxes in her awesome illustrative style that we have fallen in love with.

Pumpkins

It's that time of year. Our students are using water colors, soft pastels, and markers to make their own fall pumpkins. This is hands down my favorite time of year. I just wish it was a little cooler!

Fall Birch Trees

This week our students are using palette knives and acrylic paint to make these awesome birch trees. Fall is my favorite time of the year so it's no wonder this project makes me happy and puts me in the mood for flannel shirts, awesome soups, fireplaces and scary movies!

The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai

This week our students are using tempera paint to learn about Katsushika Hokusai. He was a master printmaker and did this work 1832! It has been and will always be one of our favorites.

Tropical Landscapes

This week our students are using acrylic paint to make their own tropical landscapes with waterfalls. Again, another lesson inspired by our recent trip to Costa Rica. Also a farewell to a very warm summer while being aware of the fact that winter is just around the bend.
