Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – February 2, 2018

….thanks Cee for hosting the Which Way Photo Challenge

It’s Groundhog Day. Which way did Wiarton Willie from Ontario go? Back in his hole. Six more weeks of Winter for us. Ugh!!!!!!!!

Not surprising. It’s freezing outside and the forecast calls for more snow this weekend.

365 Days of Art – Day 6

…..today’s prompt was Blind Fruited

Carla Sonheim always comes up with interesting assignments. Instead of drawing a piece of fruit without looking at the paper (blind contour drawing), Carla wanted the fruit to be blindfolded. Here’s my blind apple. Enjoy!

Oops, I dated this incorrectly. He should be Jan 6, 2018. I changed it on the original.

 

Imaginary Creatures Created From Sidewalk Cracks

….I can’t tell you how much my students loved going outside and sketching the cracks in the pavement

Today my grade two students took their favourite sidewalk crack and using it as the starting point drew an imaginary creature. I can’t take credit for this idea. I’m taking an on-line class with Carla Sonheim called Imaginary Creatures and one of the assignments was to pull out images from cracks anywhere you could them.

Here are some of the creatures that my grade two class created today. I included two of the original cracks that inspired the finished project. I hope you enjoy them!

 

How Would You Look if You Played a Part in the New Peanuts Movie?

…..this is fun to play with

Chris Donner over at Cee’s Photography introduced my to Get Peanutized. The new Peanuts movie is coming out this November and this website lets you create your own Peanuts Character. Of course I had to have long blonde hair and those cool red heart shaped glasses. I also loved school so my setting is in front of the lockers with my sidekick, Snoopy. Give it a try!
