I have a rule at my house:
I don't care if it's messy as long as something is being created when it's messy. Well things have been in the process of being created for a few weeks. I do dishes and sweep, so it's not disgusting. It's just filled with a project here, and another project there.
Travis has been working on testing out projects for his student workshops here at home.
Here's a joint project. Mica bent some wires on a board and put a knee high over it to make a sculpture.
Isaak painted it, and poured some sand in the wet paint. Whatever is laying around, Isaak wants to try. Isaak, "Mom I love crackle. Can I use it?" Me, "Not this time." Isaak, "Why?" Me, "You're sculpture is flat, and has a really great look going on. Stick with it, don't add more things to it." Isaak, "What's retarder? Can I use that?" Me, "No you don't need retarder. It's a medium you can add to your paint, so it dries slower. You want your paint to dry faster."
Travis has many piles of projects going on. One lots of cut colored paper for one of his classes. His 8th graders mad this:
I haven't been painting, but instead designing like crazy. I've been trying to put my illustrations into design projects. It's a lot of work.
I did all these this weekend:
The book took the longest. I still don't know if I'm totally happy with it. For the time being it's done. That's a fake story, and author.
I did find a story online about Native Americans Struggling to Find Housing. It looks better larger.
These are my cookies. I made an ad series called, "Get Cookies Faster".
Have you created anything lately?
