Fall 2014 Children's Art Lessons

Fall Lessons for ages 3-12 was terrific with lots of fabulous art created!  Here's a look at what we learned and some of the art from those lessons.

All student's work in the Flickr Galleries coming soon!

 Lots of fun Halloween Printing
The students learned how to draw some Halloween characters, then carved them into foam.  Next we rolled on the paint and printed them!  This is an easy technique you can do with your kids using foam plates, paint and mini ,spongy paint rollers. Use metallic paint, and different colored papers.

Fun Pumpkins!

Happy cat and pumpkin

Witches and Frankenstiens

Special Art for the "Glow in the Dark" Art Show

Cultural Art
Our cultural art lesson was about Middle Eastern designs that are used in tile, tin and artwork.  We used aluminum, permanent markers, tools for embossing and jewels to create symmetrical patterns and designs.  Design using these principles was a little challenging for the kids.
