Art Show!!

The past two years I've created a video to help promote the school wide Art Show. Last year I had some help from my videographer husband, but this year I rocked it solo! Check it out!

Hope you enjoyed and I hope your shows go well!

Playing Cards and This Week's Sketches

Alright I know you've all heard of "Artist Trading Cards" but have you heard of "Artist Playing Cards"? Well I stumbled upon this really awesome set of playing cards. Each of the 55 cards is created by a talented contemporary artist, compiled together into one awesome set. They just came out with a another! If you haven't heard of this click here. On the website you can view each card and read a little about the artist that made them. Let's get out there and order some decks!

My kiddos had so much fun exploring all the cards and then they got the chance to make their own! We threw in a little on colored pencil shading, symmetry and other fun artsy concepts. I have big plans to expand and make a full set of 55 cards! How fun would this be as a fundraiser?

Do you all have the same anime obsessed kiddos I do? 

Also, just in case you're playing along. Here are my first 7 sketches for the month of May. I can't believe it's May already! Days are ticking by and still so much fun to be had in the Art room!
