A quick sketch in my writing journal before heading off to teach today. My husband often calls me “the bag lady” and this is why. I carry multiple bags around with me. And bags within bags (like the knitting bag tucked in my purse/handbag). This is actually a fairly light day. Typically I have bags of supplies to bring in with me, such as paper towels, napkins, paper plates, cut papers, etc. We’ve been painting a lot lately in my classes and today we get to begin a painted paper collage inspired by the works of Eric Carle…I am soooo excited to see how these develop!! I will post progress on Instagram, if you want to follow me there.
This is how we paint: tempera in ice trays. Works great. When colors get a little murky (which they will with so many kids going into them with their partially cleaned off brushes :), then you have the other spaces to add fresh paint.
Perhaps you’ll get to paint today too!
