Girls' Art Class

For the last two weeks, we've been working on Folk Art drawings,
with lots of bold patterns and bright colors....
 {{amazing results!}}
 ...and bead-making, with this salt dough recipe.
 We also make necklace pendants and itty bitty houses.
I can't tell you how delighted I was to see my little pupils painting their homes with stripes and polka dots! That's what I love about kids!!-- their imagination is the limit!
Round house? Why not! Polka dots and swirly doors? Sure!
 It was sooooo gorgeous last week, so we did our lessons and snack break outside on the porch,
along with a little stretching (goofing off, whatev')
The sky is the limit!
Make some dough, mold your scuptures, and let air-dry.
(We left ours under the couch for a week, and painted them during the following lesson.)
Use tempera or acylics to paint them.
These are great, cheap, easy, personal Mother's and Father's Day gifts!
