The Imagine That Art Camp started up again today...these students are 5th and 6th graders...so although we did the same skulls for "Day of the Dead" we let them add a little extra pizazz with sequins and the ever popular GLITTER...fun times to the max although this glitter could be the "death of me!!"

"I don't ask for the meaning of the song of a bird, or the rising of the sun on a misty morning...there they are and they are beautiful." (As I drove to work this morning I couldn't help but notice the mist rising over this valley..so I had to stop and take it in.)

For our last class in this session of Pint Size Picassos we focused on the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)...seemed the perfect combination for the week before Halloween. Their skull art was a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and chaos...not too scary but certainly beautiful results.

Last night I made a couple dozen ghostly peeps for our school bake sale to help support the Holiday Bear Project. Each class sponsors 2 to 4 needy children that would go without presents at Christmas time. We raised alot of money to help defray some of the costs and the peeps were a big hit with the kids...not a bad job for a "non-baker".

Mr. Chapman's class is doing an enormous mural based on the Signature Project presentation we had come visit us last week. The little piece of lettering in the top corner is blown up into an 8 x 8 inch block...and doodled using your name in black ink...filling in the background in grey ink....once all the pieces are blocked out together they will complete a phrase for creative expression...cool stuff! (This is my piece of the puzzle)
