Ice Cream sundaes

 This was a three day sub assignment for middle school classes. I showed students how to draw the outline shape of the sundae cup and the ice cream then let them create their own sundaes with a choice of their topping and favors. This is outlined first drawn in pencil then, outlined in black permanent markers then colored with oil pastel.

Craft paper book

This was made from the leftover packaging paper from a box of speedy cut. I am drawing on each piece and will bind them into a book when I am done.

Cardboard tube paintings

Cardboard tube painting. I read about this years ago in a preschool art book. I have found it to be very successful for 5 to 9 year colds as well. This is a cardboard tube from paper towel dipped rolled into paint. Then a smaller tube dipped into another color of paint at the ends. Kids also added detail with their own brushes.

Beautiful beads

 I was gifted with some new beads recently by a friend and have been working on  new bead work necklaces and earrings for my tribaltrends.etsy shop. I have also been doing bead work with the kids from the after school kids.
