All of the project ideas can be found on my Artists Pinterest board--at least I'm pretty sure! This was a collage activity where they were supposed to cut images out of magazines to make a surrealistic picture, like this weird baby cat.
I really love how the elephants (based on this picture) came out!
Alice wanted to go ahead an use pastels on her elephant, too. She kind of likes them. In fact, she's using them as I type this. If I don't finish this up soon, we'll have an inch of chalk pastel dust in the school room.
And of course we had to make our own melted clocks! We used Model Magic because it is so much easier to work with, but the downside is that it is not as sturdy as clay. Alice broke hers in half when she pressed down on it too hard!
We also had some themed snacks this month, starting with mustache milkshakes!
This was supposed to be a melted clock cake, but it turned out looking more like a peanut--but it still tasted good!
Since there is a temporary exhibit at Crystal Bridges we are doing some schedule shuffling and moving our Georgia O'Keeffe artist study to November!
