Birthday Parties!

Art parties are so much fun. I happened upon them by chance when some students asked me to "do my birthday party". We had a lizard party where the children cut open clay "lizard eggs" and then made clay lizards to take home. We've also made glitter globes with clay teddy bears. I can make an art party out of any theme. Just let me know what your child is interested it. Here are some ideas.
*Miniature tea sets, or doll house food
*Board Games
*Clay Castles
*Miniature animals that look like their webkins : )
Also any of the projects you see on my lesson plan blog
I can come to you house, or you could have it hosted by Trinity Dance/Gym.

Fall 2009

It's almost time to start classes again! This year I'm teaching after school at Casas and Cornerstone. I'll also be teaching home school classes on Mondays and Thursdays. Monday at 1:00 will be illustration classes. These are kid-centered drawing projects designed to build confidence and knowledge in a fun way. Students are challenged to used their imagination within the guidelines of a structured project. Mondays at 2:00 and Thursdays at 11:00 I will teach projects based on famous artists and art history.
