And I am using this dragon (also by me) on some of my stuff. Both the logo and the dragon are great for adding color as desired. I'll share my color images another time. Meanwhile, let me tell you what's happening with my new business!
Sorry the photo posted sideways...
By the way, my intent is to run multi-week programs based on a theme. The theme for these 7 weeks is "Explorations in 3-Dimensions". Students will be doing some simple sculptural and relief projects, as well as some very basic perspective projects. I'm planning on really packing a lot into the 7 weeks we have.
I am very lucky and quite thankful that workspace has been provided for me by my Temple. They have been very gracious about allowing me these rooms rent-free, for now. And old library (the second and third photos) is our home base, and where we will do pretty much anything other than painting. There is an ugly old carpet on the floor, but still, it is a carpet and I don't want to have to dropcloth the floor. Across the hall is a kindergarten/1st grade room, and for now we are using that for the painting room (the first photo). The tables and chairs are kind of small and low.here and here and here and here.
Meanwhile, I'm using leftovers of the mash to make latkes, for the trophy for the 3rd annual Latke Fest at Temple Beth El. Chanukah is early this year!!!! You can see my previous trophy constructions here and here. I'm thinking this year's trophy will include a plate with a stack of 18 latkes piled precariously high, with some sour cream and applesauce on top. In Hebrew, the word chai (not the tea!) means life, and also represents the number 18, so it is a significant number. By the way, if you weren't familiar with the word chai, the 'ch' is a gutteral sound, not a typical 'ch' sound as in chips or Cheerios. It is part of the word l'chaim, which means 'to life'. L'chaim is commonly used as a drinking toast. If my stack of 18 latkes isn't ridiculously high enough, I may just make 18 more. I want the trophy to be outrageous and silly. Here's a few of the newly made papier-mache latkes. They will take a while to dry out.
