Last but not least we did something I haven't ever done with my students before. I took them to the sunshine art gallery in the Tennessee Art League to visit with Shaunna a professional artist there. The students asked questions and Shaunna talked about her creative process. The students were very excited to see a real professional artists studio space!!

The other one job searching outside the box was rejected- but I will re-write it and try again for next year. I was so exicted about the first e-mail reading congradulations, that I originally miss read the second one... but its ok because I did read the first one correct and I am presenting at NATIONALS!!!! Hope to see all my fabulous art teacher friends there!

Creating the understructure using newpaper and medical tape (because it was donated to us and it worked well for the project!)
Spreading the wet sculptamold over the matt board and newpaper understructure.
Painting the projects once the sculptamold was dry. I waited a couple days to make sure that the sculptamold was good and dry. The students pallets were limited to metalic silver, gold, pink, blue, and flat blue and yellow.
All of the individual Artworks have been submitted to Artsonia under the King's Daughers' School and should be up within a few days!
