Collage Class

Yesterday the collage class I teach at the Youth Center really seemed to enjoy the activity. I had about 12 participants. I taught them about ATC or ACEO cards. Incase you are not familiar with the terms they stand for Art Trading Cards and Art Cards Editions and Originals. The kids all enjoyed making the miniature art, I think they liked the fast process, some were able to make 3 cards in the session. They also seem to like the sealing process using Mod Podge and the shiny effect it gave their art, plus it is like painting and using crds made from Goldfish Cracker boxes, cereal boxes, etc. (the Goldfish seemed to be the most popular). Overall there were some really nice ATC that were made. Even though said they could trade they all wanted to keep them for themselves :) I think we may have to extend the activity to next week along with card making! AND of course I forgot the camera :(

Artwork moves

Dropped off the 2 collages : Gumballs and Kame the Turtle to the Children & Family Services. They are on loan there until I finish their paintings. Still trying to think what kind of painting to make them. Maybe they would like my new character Happy????
