shape self-portraits

This year we focused on the 7 elements of art and each of our projects explored at least one of those elements. In our kindergarten/first grade we made large shape self-portraits. We started the lesson with making patterns using a pom pom on a clothes pin. They made patterns of dots, lines or both. We kept it simple by just using black or white paint. 

I cut out the heads for the kids to save time and to keep from having heads that were too small or too large. I pre punched a bunch of black and white circles for the eyes and also cut the squares and rectangles for the hands and fingers. The kids cut their arms and legs out of the patterned paper and then assembled the bodies.

They added some facial features with crayons and then got to work on adding hair!

 It was so fun to hang these in the hallway and see all the kids spending time with their friends in the hall!!
I absolutely LOVE how these turned out!

custom home painting

Home is the nicest word there is. -Laura Ingalls Wilder

Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort -Jane Austen

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. -Maya Angelou

Custom home paintings are a labor of love...and I love to paint them. The homes take time and attention to detail but still leave room for small mistakes and imperfections as anything made by hand would include. These home paintings make excellent gifts for those who have just purchased their new home, for those moving out of their home and for those who want to remember a special home from their childhood. 

These paintings would make great gifts for realtors to give to their clients and for loved ones to give to grandparents who are moving out. There are so many reasons that a home painting is the perfect gift. Contact me today so we can get started on a custom home painting for you or a loved one. Homes are painted on archival safe paper. The painting will be 8x10 and come matted to 11x14 and ready for you to put in the perfect frame for your home. 

Realtors, ask me about my special five month introductory pricing.
