Fiona's Art!

Fiona came home from school yesterday with a bunch of art projects that she had completed throughout the school year. (The one above is an embellished letter "F".)



The second one is her version of "Starry Night". They had learned about Vincent Van Gogh and used a marbling technique to create the night sky...




This is a monster they created with "squishy paint". I am SO INSPIRED by the girl's art work. Complete serendipity; look at those colors! Do you think she sat there beforehand and said "now what colors do I need to use for the best look?" NO! She just created with utter abandon and the wonderful color combination just appeared- straight from her heart:) I already told her I'm going to scan her artwork and use portions of it for my collages -I can't wait. What are you inspired by?

I'm amazed at your daughter's work; you can tell that artistic talent runs in the family!:-)

The projects she created in art class are truly a testament to her teacher's creativity; it's a shame that my art teachers in elementary school didn't plan projects like these. We just drew all the time, and this was a turn-off to me, as I've never been a good sketch artist. If I'd had a teacher like your daughter's, I bet I would've discovered my artistic muse much earlier in life than in my 30's!

Jenny - I think you are so right when it comes to the art teacher. The art teacher at the girl's school is wonderful! She is so passionate about the kids and their creativity. She's also not afraid to try new things, I taught her to needlefelt last spring!
