another fundraiser project
Artwork for our PTSA fundraiser must be something that can be finished quickly, that is colorful, and that can be successful at some level for every child. It's always a challenge to find something that works.
This year's 5th graders are an enthusiastic and engergetic group, but many of them have a challenge focusing on craftsmanship. So we painted colorful skies, and then did an ink silhouette on top of it. They did not all choose trees and moons as subject matter, but these are the ones I managed to snap photos of. There are also underwater scenes, jumping dolphins, downhill skiers and snowboarders, howling wolves, and more, many which I would consider too formulaic if they weren't for the fundraiser. Their mothers will love them and want to buy them, and that's the point here - to help the PTSA raise money.
By the way - I shot this somewhat out-of-focus photo out of a (moving) car window. I wanted to note that, for those who say that the "right way" to draw clouds is to make them white, that these clouds are a peachy-rose and a denim blue-grey. Not a white cloud among 'em.
