Fun Art in February!!

 Children's classes: Rosina Cat Art
Cats, cats, cats!!  This was such a fun project!  We first started out drawing our cats using oil pastels on black paper, emulating the style of artist Rosina Wachtmeister from Austria

Then we painted on black posterboard with bright tempera paints.  The kids got to choose whether they wanted a fantasy land outside or inside.
Here are some of the finished artwork:

Arcimboldi Fruit and Veggie Faces
Guisseppe Arcimboldi lived during the Renaissance and created very interesting portraits using all organic things like, fruits, vegetables, grain and plants.  We tried to do some artwork like him.  Take a look at his weird artwork!
