Watercolor and Indian Ink Creations

This week we had a blast with watercolor paints. We essentially swiped our papers with two colors of paint and played around with what each student like as a color combination. We then took indian ink and and dropped a little 'blob' onto the papers. The students then blew through a straw to direct the ink where ever they desired. Check out the outcome!!

Aboriginal Clay Medallions

Last week we created some really cool aboriginal inspired clay medallions. The students first pounded out some 'air drying' clay and decided on a gemstone for the center. We then carefully placed glass beads in a repeated pattern using shape and color. We then poked holes in the top and slid a hemp string through it and added feathers. They turned out so great. Check them out!
