Oil Pastel Cats

This was a really fun lesson with the kids.  All their personalities came out on their artwork.  Some kids had vibrant colors. Others had great patterns and fun backgrounds.  It was a lesson to introduce them to abstract art as well as to teach them about oil pastels.  Here are some results.

Chalk Pastel Pumpkins

October was a busy month, then again, it seems like every month is busy! I am just getting around to posting the chalk pastel pumpkin lesson.  I have so many more pictures of these to post, but here are a few to get your started.  The kids did a great job learning how to blend and use the chalk to create shadows and shading.

The New Session Has Begun

Wow, time really does fly!  I cant believe its been almost a month since my last post.  We had a break inbetween sessions and life just got busy, as it always seem to do.

I love this time of year.  I like to teach projects that coincide with the seasons, holidays and this festive time of year.  We started the session off painting frightening Frankensteins on wood blocks. 

This weeks lesson we will be doing a chalk pastel pumpkin lesson on matte board.  Lots of pictures to come, and lots of lessons planned for the coming weeks. 

Don't forget, if you want to enroll your child in Session 5 (which starts in December), and are NEW to our studio, you must register in November.  Due to a high demand, there are very limited spots available. 

Thanks for allowing me to do what I love!
