A while back a etsy shop fan of my tribal trends shop recommended mother daughter combo sets of hair things. So here are my two examples of just that. A combo set is a headband hair bunch and a alligator clip bunch that matches. To purchase go to tribaltrends.etsy.com.
Feast your eyes on these fancy foods. We made super sandwich drawings then we made sculptural sandwiches with my sat class at the gallery. To make a Super sandwich drawing stack a draw a top of a bun at the top of the pages and a bottom of a sun at the bottom of the page. Then fill with ingredients. Draw cheese lettuce, burgers, meats, gravy you can even add, candy, eye balls, etc. Here is my unfinished--( the plight of the art teacher) example.

I just finished teaching a day of still lifes at the art Gallery. The students are ages 7-13 and the day had several smaller drawing excerises to it The first was drawing part of a still life of translucent bottles and fake grapes in contour without picking up your pencil. Then draw the same object from the still life in blind contour- without looking at the drawing. The students had a paper folded into four parts for this actvitiy. The next drawing was the same onjects again but this time as a gesture drawing- quick fast broken sketchy lines to catch the movement of the onject. The last drawing was to draw the object in semi blind contour when you can look at the paper sometimes but not all the time.
The The second activity was the draw one part of the still life and pass it to a table neighbor who would draw the next part of the still life.
For younger students we drew the still life then scribbled on the back in order to transfer it onto a drawing board.
For older students we drew the scene again.
The middle object in these is oil pastal and the outter objects are watercolor.
