My last summer art classes are now finished. These pictures are from a class called art animals. We made hanging mobile sculptures out of clay and glass. Ages 4-5. Fall classes start up in a couple weeks!

Luke knows the way to my heart. Yesterday when I got home from the museum, I was surprised with a HUGE bag of vintage lace. Every color imaginable! It was like Christmas :) He got it from a lady at work for free!

Found this on my walk this morning! It's so pretty and yet...im just not ready for summer to be over.
We are off to the lake later today. Have a great weekend everyone!!!

coming soon!

Garden sculpture class

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

All of my summer art classes are coming to an end this week. Here are some pictures from the garden sculpture class that I have been teaching over the past 4 weeks. We made house sculptures out of white earthenware that will function as bird feeders. They were pressed with twigs and leaves, glazed and then miniature glass mosaics were added to the front!

Just finished up teaching a hand-building ceramics class. An extremely talented, motivated and creative group of kids. It was my first time teaching a decal class and the first time I have ever done decals on low fire clay. I think they turned out great! Have a peek...

Flower plate and favorite food cylinders. These were hand-built from slabs of white earthenware. The artist Samuel (4th grade).

Assorted mugs. Love the dinosaur! Made by Olivia (10th grade)

Giraffe canisters. Made by Jessi (7th grade). Oh how I love these :)

new goods!
