Just a bit from Winter Art Classes

Encaustic Painting by Cameron, age 11
Encaustics is painting with melted wax. We used melted crayons and decorators wax to create our abstract, textural paintings. So fun!

Monster by Jace, age 5
In February, our Artists we showcased were Maurice Sendak and Eric Carle. Both are Illistrator/Authors. It was fun to let the kids see that illistrators are artists too. The Preschool class did Monster drawings and paper cut collages using texture painted papers. The other classes did scratch art using thier own monster designs.

Flower Encaustics by Nicole (teacher example)

Fairy by Saige, age 11
My pre-teen class on Mondays has been working hard and completed their Fairy art projects in January. I think the girls learned a lot a long the way such as how to draw people using realistic body proportions, how to draw faces, several watercolor techniques and how to use watercolor pencils. All of the girls' artwork turned out so beautiful. I look forward to seeing them all mounted and displayed at the Spring Art Show!
