Future Artists!

I am so excited today! This is so far the best day for me this week. I have been working incessantly creating Christmas presents – sleeping 5 hours every day. And I’m still not done shopping. I am exhausted...

So today I checked my second e-mail account and there’s a new mail (yay!). For the past 3 months, I’ve only gotten 3 and they’re all from the sites I’ve signed up with. I proceeded to open it and it was from my cousin. She attached not one but three paintings of her students!

The first painting is from Lil. She used sponge, paintbrush and watercolor. She’s quite adventurous.

The second one is from Isa. She used sponge and watercolor.

And last but not the least is from Allie who used paintbrush and watercolor.

These were all painted on oslo paper by second grade students. The project was called “Invisible Painting.” The lesson was about porous (permeable) and non-porous (nonpermeable) materials. The students had to use white candle instead of white crayon and then paint watercolor over it. I thought it was a fantastic lesson. Great job Balot! And thank you for the paintings.

I love the one with the hearts (flying) and the sun (warm on a dreary day) and the green (spring will come)

Thanks Teri. I love the first one especially. I hope she sends me more. By the way, I love the wig on your cat. I thought she’s a toy – very pretty.

Yeah I was so ecstatic when I received an e-mail from my cousin. She's really a sweetheart. And I agree, watercolor is not very easy to do but they did such fantastic jobs.
