Another Thursday, another art lesson. Since we are enjoying owls lately I went back to that artist woman and we made another mixed media owl. This project was actually spread out over a few days since I wanted to be able to just do assembly today. Throughout the week I would grab a free child hand them paper and give some direction. I used newsprint (finally, the New York Times has some value) which Erin whitewashed and then flicked with black and brown paint. Kelli and Kevin painted brown paper grocery bags (local health food store still uses these) a mixture of yellow and orange. Then random children painted more brown paper with browns and blacks and flicked white on them. This sounds like a lot of work but really each piece of paper took less than five minutes.
I cut shapes early this morning before the kids were up.
This and the following were the papers I cut feather shapes from. I didn't cut all the ones we would need leaving some of the cutting to the kids, I just got them started.
Gail (that artist woman) makes a point of how important it is to make all of the components of this project. I agree it made the kids much more invested in the whole project. We did add some scrap paper feathers to add a bit of color and interest as well.
The eyes were made from egg cartons which I cut ahead of time. I painted them white and then the kids added the detail.
We must have fruit leather while creating.
I think they came out well. Another successful project!
