Artsy Partsy, Class 2

Dakota and I have been looking forward to going back to her art class since last week. She was so happy when I reminded her that we got to go back today!

The class continued with the sky/air theme and we made several things that you could find up there. The first thing we learned was how to draw a bee. We got to practice on a scrap piece of paper before doing our final drawing.

Practice with pencil:


Real deal using oil pastels and watercolors:

She drew her bees body a little close to the top of the paper so she put the wings on the bottom. :) Great learning experience!

The next project was to glue small squares of paper to a hot air balloon picture:

The third project involved a butterfly stencil taped to white paper that we then painted on top of and around. Once we removed the butterfly we were able to paint it a different color. Easy, peasy with awesome results!

The last project of the day was painting and then gluing button windows on an airplane:

Next week we'll either begin the land or sea part of our classes and we're excited to go back!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
