10 Days until the Art Show!
Well, 9 since today is over. Really 8 if you take into consideration that I won't be in school Friday.
There was a death in the family. (No worries, my great aunt lived a full life into her nineties. She has been taken care of by the Little Sisters for the last few years and is now resting peacefully with her husband, daughter and my dad. I'm looking forward to celebrating her wonderful life and memory with my family!)
Today after school I juggled between helping students with clay character bowls, cleaning up after a whirlwind of the day, and guiding my dedicated eighth graders in getting mats started for the works selected for the Show.
We will have black felted panels from the local art association, but my principal likes the look of the black rail board, and as its been done traditionally, I am taking the extra step. (He also likes the works glued, so I have been fighting the humidity and my better judgement.) This way too though, I can use any and all available wall space and still have things look professional.
After a little over an hour and a half, we have two classes done and eleven more to go!
The above image is from a PhotoShop class I took in college. I have/had limited skills with technology. The following semester though the idea of layering images flowed into my Photo Process Printmaking class and I again used these images to create metal printing plates and layered the registers. That I had a ton of fun with and even gave away and framed many works from that class.
