My Senior Art Class did great work today. We painted in gouache on Oriental fans. My suggestions was cherry blossoms, but many of them felt confident enough to try their own ideas and did some creative work. They make me so happy.

Today we painted on sandpaper (150 grit) using oil pastels and Arteza hair chalk.  Then we crinkled wax paper and used spray adhesive to adhere it onto the sandpaper.  Nice effect.  Finished pieces were made into greeting cards.

I was so happy to see the seniors go off in different directions with this.  Each one was unique.  Many of them did far better than me. 

My class keeps getting bigger.

Thanks Gita and Nolan.

I had four new people in the group today, and they got right into it.  It is so much fun to work with this group of people.
