This month students are still working on their still life acrylic paintings! They have all been taking a lot of time and doing their best work on these still life paintings and I’m excited to see how they come out! We first learned about composition and arranging a still life, completing several thumbnail sketches of inanimate objects arranged in different ways. Students had the chance to arrange objects and form their own set-ups. The decided arrangement was then sketched out onto a canvas. Before painting we talked about the color wheel and making our own colors as well as exploring tints, tones, & shades & undertones!

This month was also full of classes! Some fun projects at the Seaford Library, the Art League in OC, Roaring Point Campground, & a special paint party at Westside Community Center!

One of my favorite Easter traditions is forcing loved ones to make Ukranian Easter Eggs (I think they really like it) – the cat was at least happy to join in. It’s a time-consuming method, using wax resist – the results are always cool!

Also preparing for some upcoming art events with painted wine glasses and polymer clay bookmarks! Check out Music & Arts @ Pemberton Park! Fridays in May to purchase!

We also took a little break from painting still life in classes to create an Easter project – Decoupaged Eggs!

Check out these projects you can do at home!
