Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches - Working hard.

Hi guys, well I have not had much time to create or post this last couple of weeks, first up my eldest 'baby' turned 10! Still can't believe he's double figures already! So we had lots of party planning, shopping cleaning etc.....

Then this last week I was called into work to cover a sick teachers assistant at school. Normally I'm there for the art program where I paint murals and do all sorts of different projects with the children. This week I was also assisting the Junior school as well as doing the art. I got to work with the preschoolers, kindies and year 1 and 2! I've been thinking for a while now about pursuing some studies in early childhood eduction and I think I  may have found my niche! I had such a wonderful time working with the children and would be happy to do that full time! So we shall see. It's certainly food for thought.

So I didn't have much time to create this week but I do have this blue sugar skull lady to show you. I felt I needed to create one in a different colour and I love how she turned out.

I also thought I'd show you some pics of my latest project I completed this week with the year 1 and 2 children. I was asked to do a city scape project with them as they are learning about their community etc. So I made up a city scape of my own to show them then helped them create their own. I introduced them to the mixed media concept and they had a great time with paint, coloured and textured paper and pens and pencils, I'm really proud of them for what they came up with I will show more pics when they are on display but these are a couple from my first group.....

This was my design that I made to show the kids!

 They started by painting their backgrounds then spent their time cutting out the buildings and arranging them on the paper. They added the details to create perspective and the feeling of a busy city!

 This one is a crane building a bridge! Oh and of course Batman is climbing up the building....heheheh
 I really love how they got the concept of overlapping the buildings to make it really look like a city scape.
 LOVE the 3D element that some of these kids added to theirs!!! Oh and the one at the front with the '50% off' sign was created by my 6 year old, he knows his mother loves a bargain heheh!

So proud of the children and all their creations. What a great week! :)

I will try my very best to get round to as many of you guys as possible! :)

Only children have the freshness and naturalness of expressing what they see without artifice. Saludos y felicidades a tu "nonbebe".

Your city scape and the childrens work is great! I work with 5-7 year olds and this would be a great project! Thanks for sharing, Happy PPF :)

Your painting is gorgeous and I love the childrens' work! So cool! It's so neat that you have found that you love to work with kids. It takes a very special person to do that! So neat and fun!
