Somehow, I managed to agree to take over art classes for the term with Chas' class, the Primary Fives. It's something I love to do but I REALLY don't have the time and WHY did I agree to this? Anyway, so far so good. Sharon has kept me supplied with ideas for classes, as well as Vicky (one of the class mommies and a friend also). So it's been delegating and teaching but not much syllabus prep or beforehand work.
Last week, we did such a fun project: Sharon sent me some paintings via email (The Mona Lisa, etc) and I printed them out and cut them into 2-inch squares. I gave each kid one of these squares with instructions to copy what they saw onto a bigger square piece of paper. "But what IS this???" When they were done, we put them all together and voila, a really cubist Mona Lisa and a very impressionist Monet! I will definitely take pictures on Friday when I go in for Sam's art class AND dollar day sale, because you just have to see them. They are amazing.
I hope to see Lou and Louie for lunch tomorrow, which will be great. Lou has left four tubes of oil paint in my posession, which is making me all inspired to smear oil paints around now. I have been wrapping things up at work, and soon will have no business left to run which will be WEIRD. Once the tile business side is over, I will be interested to see what happens to my paintings.
It's very cool and rainy here tonight, and I am falling asleep..... Hope you are all well my friends, I am looking forward to the weekend when I can catch up on blogs, laundry, baking and dog hair. And post some pictures. See you then!
