OUR DRAGON-Painting and working with balance part of structure


We have been working hard to figure out how to balance the dragon, cover the dragon with texture, and paint the accent colors on the dragon. It is all red now, next comes yellow and gold, and the face. The children are still excited to work on the dragon. We are behind on our BIG MONTHLY projects, because each project has extended over the amount of time I thought the children would be interested.

Next is Tim Dine Large HEARTS, I hope the children will still want to do them, even though valentines will be long gone.

Chinese New Year a great celebration for all!


The children and I have been busy in the Art Studio creating  a Dragon for our parade. We are behind because it is so big and took a long time to form, make the paper mache (which the children LOVED the most). Today we coated it with flour and water paste, some children REALLY loved the goo of that texture. It has be interesting to watch what part of the  DRAGON develoment process each child liked, from our idea to 3D form to texture – and next week color. img_1637 img_1634Red, yellow and gold- then what? Not sure, building the form from boxesimg_1627img_1628

The children were coming up with ideas for our dragon.
