Well, since I decided that today was definitely the day I avoided packing for our triumphant two week return to Amrika, I hit the interweb to see what I could find by way of lesson plans and project ideas. There were some really great sources out there, but I'm still hunting for the right "thing." Anyway, during my search, I stumbled upon this and, well, fell in love. Immediately my muse spoke to me and I grabbed my sketchbook. I wanted to draw what I was wearing today.
My family will probably see this and laugh because they know that this is, in fact, what I wear every day, not just today. But still! A fun project for the afternoon! Plus it somehow motivated me to start making piles for suitcases and get some final loads of laundry going.
Do you have any suggestions for teaching art to children? I'm thinking this could be a really fun adventure!
p.s. Can someone teach me how to take better photos of my artwork pleeeeease? There's got to be a better way to do this, even with a point and shoot.
