Today it was great to be back at Beit Rabban Day School to sew a Shabbat tablecloth with Gan Sagol. Each child drew a picture on a white 12" x 12" piece of white cotton fabric and chose a pretty printed fabric square to go next to it on the cloth. With help from some little feet pushing on the sewing machine peddle, we sewed them all together and voila! a lovely checkerboard table cloth for Friday snack time!

For the start of the new semester of art class I thought we would learn some color theory. We started with an M&M quiz..questions about the primary and secondary colors..the answers were in the M&Ms snack. Then we painted color triangles..and experimented with some Kandinsky concentric circles.

This past month at our school Chanukah Party I provided some crafts for the kids to make. I had a hard time finding good Chanukah Crafts online so I came up with one that was a big hit and thought I would share it. We made Maccabee Shields using gold cake rounds that I bought from a bakery supply store . The kids used either colored tape or glitter glue and glitter to decorate the front of the shield. For the handle on the back we used duct tape. The kids loved them.!
We also made menorah candle hats, a chanukah standard, from construction paper and gold glitter..glued and stapled together. Here I lined the kids up for a human Menorah..!

I recently was interviewed by a wonderful blog called The Hamster Wheel about drawing..
The blog posts interviews with different artists twice a month..focusing on their ideas about drawing, their process and what gets their own "hamster wheel" turning!
You can see my interview with The Hamster Wheel here...
Happy Memorial Day..!!
