Since fall of 2012, I have been helping with Judy’s Blue J Art Club – art classes for kinder through 5th graders. It’s been an inspiring learning experience for us, watching these kids work and play, helping them collaborate, and seeing what they come up with! It’s often beyond our imagination. Here are a few recent highlights…
We made beetle art! Beginning with a black oil pastel line drawing, a chalk pastel background, and watercolor for the body, these kids came up with some beautiful, jewely bugs.
Collaboration is a big deal in Blue J Art Club. The kids did a giant, loose painting that we used for a later project.
After the kids finished the mural, Judy had the idea to cut up the mural and help the kids screen-print “LOVE” on top. Great Mother’s Day gift!
It’s always fun!
