What my kids added to my work!!

Last post I showed you two pieces I did for our school walls.  I gave this challenge to a group of my 8th graders and look what that had to come back at me with!!  They are so good!!  This will make a nice installation and I can’t wait to see the other smaller installation they are working on.

First two panels I made….

 

Panels my students have added!! The two brown and one red are theirs and the white mine….

I think they might be showing me up!!  I’m so proud of them.  These installations have a lot of promise. And it comes from 13 and 14 year olds.  A great reminder of why I teach and don’t just work as a solitary artist.

Peace and Light…..WK

How will my students finish what I’ve begun?

Well, my students have been asked to create two installations for our school!  Given Two large bundles of canvas, Thanks you to our Principal, as we study Shape, one of the Elements of Art, we decide to collage shapes.  You know I’m all about the frugal way to create and these collages are made simply using vintage papers and magazine pages, along with some acrylic paints and paint markers!!!  One installation will be in triangles and the other in rectangles and squares.  We’re using white as I’ve shown below as an example, then reds and browns and greens with the rest  of the canvases.  I can’t WAIT to see what my talented students do to finish what I’ve started!  Stay tuned for the final project.  In  the mean time, these will be made available as prints on Red Bubble and Artspan….  I’ve already had one client inquire as to a purchase, although the orignals are already spoken for and were meant to be hung in the school, they are now asking for prints.  Check out Red Bubble or ArtSpan by clicking the images Below and it will lead you to the opportunity to buy prints….who knows, when the kid’s work is done….. it might be even better!!! 
 
As Always I Hope all is well with you and I’m sending Love and Light and frugal ways to create….Windy Kai
