It seems I was a bit ambitious when I decided that not only would I create art every day, but I would post it on this blog every day too! In my head, I always imagine that I will have time enough for everything, but in the end the day is over, and there is always items on my to-do list left over. This week, art happened, but blogging about it did not.
I started to beat myself up over this, and then I remembered the reason I joined Art Every Day. To make art. To join in with others who think art and creativity are important. To enjoy the process.
So that is what I am going to do. Create art. Every day. And sometimes I will post it here, and sometimes I won’t. And I will be ok with that. This is supposed to be fun, right?
Here are a few of the projects I worked on this week:
Some of the rainbow fabrics I had fun playing with on Day 5 became a fun rainbow pencil roll. (The pink fabric was chosen by a mom who wanted a roll for her pink-loving daughter. Cute, isn’t it?)
More playing with fabric as I cut circles and squares of Christmas prints for more flowers. I can’t wait to start sewing them together!
My students and I studied cave painting and then went outside and mixed up our own mud paint and created drawings on the playground pavement, with our hands! What fun we had!
And I started working on a pattern for a sweater dinosaur. My patterns aren’t much to look at, but here is what I drew for his friendly face. (It will look much better when he comes to life, it always does!)
Happy art making!
