Travel Poster Art Fun

Uluru, Australia

Paris, France



When the closest thing to traveling you do is watching Anthony Bourdain on The Travel Channel, what do you do to satisfy your wanderlust? Well, if you're me, you settle on a travel poster art themed class. It was very difficult to settle on only four destinations for my month-long class. My 2nd-4th graders used a variety of wet and dry media to create their compositions. They had a lot of fun exploring a new land each week. So even though it's been years since I've had my passport stamped, this was a nice little consolation prize.

Owl and Raccoon Portraits

My apologies for being MIA for the past couple months. While my husband was recuperating from some health issues, this art major was educating herself on everything from atrial ablations, astigmatisms, A1c's, and the benefits of acupuncture. And this was only the "A's". Phew!

I'm glad to be stepping away from all the medical terminology and getting back into the elements of art! Here are some recent pieces from my Autumn Draw, Paint Collage class. (K-3rd)

Mixed Media Raccoons

Owl Collages

As a fun bonus, the eyes and moons were painted with glow in the dark paint
