Painted Silk Scarf- Turtle, Octopus, Sea Star

This is the first time I have done silk painting. I am really enchanted by it and have already ordered a boxful of even more supplies! I am even thinking of teaching a silk painting class at the local continuing education school because Dharma Trading Company has a really cool kit for a beginner's class of 30 students.

Little bird embroidery

This was from a Dimensions kit. It was very easy, but completely charming.

Art Lesson from April 23, 2010

In this project the kids drew buildings and colored them with oil pastels. We put them up on a background I had made ahead of time. Because they were done on construction paper and then the shapes were cut out, they really "pop."
