Kids work!

It is great to watch a kid's work as she puts the ideas and together and begins to construct the piece. I'd love to feature all of my kids' work, but that will be impossible. So check out the links on the right to see each kids work. Katie's work!

Workin' away!

The classes are moving forward and making art. The 3D kids have started blogging, and I hope that you get to check out their work.

As usual, I'm amazed by what the kids come up with.

In this one, Alex found an artist, Eugene Soloviev, with whose work he became smitten. "I really enjoyed making this piece because Soloviev's style really appeals to me. The idea behind Soloviev's pieces is that he takes two things that don't belong together and put them in a "different" background. In my piece I took a tiger and a house cat and put them underwater to portray a cat's distaste for water. Furthermore, it's sort of ironic that the tiger is chasing a house cat. I had a slow start to this piece, but I am pleased with how it turned out." Alex

Pickle Boy

This is a beginning tutorial that the graphics kids will do. I had some fun putting it into context, and I learned a new trick, which I always love. I cannot wait to see the kids' efforts.
