Our final project this year was a stunner – AND it helped me use up all the odd bits of tempera paint in the paint cupboard. (Little known art fact – old tempera paint does NOT keep over the summer…peee-yew to smelly paint in the paint cupboard!)
Students traced circles on long banner paper, then each student was given one color and a brush, and moved around the room painting their color on all the banners. The final step on our group project was to add extra dots and embellish the circles, and finish with a black painted background.
Best of all…our finished banners are now on display in our art room; aren’t they great? (Let’s not talk about Mrs. Brouwer climbing to the top of the 20 foot ladder and hanging on tight while slinging these over the metal ceiling support bars…all while muttering to herself, “don’t look down….don’t look down”…)
With the new banners in place and the art room packed up after another year, it is time to enjoy a break. I’ll see you all this September – don’t forget to visit us on ARTSONIA, where you’ll find over 13,000 of our art masterpieces on display! ~Mrs. Brouwer
