5th grade cats by Grant, Mattie, and Caitlin
Still more cats are done that I haven't shown you, but I couldn't resist posting these 3 adorable kitties. Finally, only a few stragglers are left in the cabinet, in need of final touches like whiskers or collars, but for the most part, the cats are DONE and are displayed all over the place in the school library, waiting until our big art show in May.
So now the 5th graders have moved on to their new project, and are merrily working on... can you guess? ... toothpaste batiks! Of all my posts on my blog for almost two years now, this post in May 2010 about this crazy process has been viewed by far the most - over 5000 times! YIKES! And now we are tackling this again, with a theme this year of - can you guess?? - No? - dragons, castles, wizards, etc - FANTASY!
Keep in mind this process is EXPERIMENTAL and I have let the kids run with their own ideas for the artwork, so check back after vacation to see how they turn out!
