My own personal creations.

So I am starting to create my ceramic pendant necklaces to sell at various events throughout the year. Here is the first one of many to come of the KDS logo... heres to hoping they will be a hot seller at the TAEA conference suitcase sale!

Sculptamolding VanGogh's Starry Night!

After talking with the students about how very thick VanGogh's paintings were- we made some super thick paintings starting with a layer of sculptamold over crinkled up taped down newpaper! Super Chunky and Super FUN!

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.

Check out the results!

All of the individual Artworks have been submitted to Artsonia under the King's Daughers' School and should be up within a few days!

More Mona's...

Since Artsonia won't post these I am... Note I do have releases in student files here at school that give permission to the school to take photos of the students. It's all good! Artsonia will not however publish these because they do contain images of students under the age of 18. I don't blame them.

First Project: Mona Mesa's!

KDS's version of Debi West's Mona Mesa Lesson Plan!
The students were very intrigued by the recent sighting of the original Mona Lisa in the news! Apparently a crazy lady threw her mug at the famous artwork and was taken away to an instution following the incident!
Thanks to Ted for the link!
