I have more ideas than time these days to complete a series of drawings on distressed, dictionary pages. I still like the look of the Sepia brown Micron pens and am really pleased that they are lasting through a lot of drawings. It's a really busy time at school with the third nine weeks wrapping up this Friday. My students are just finishing paper mache' mask making and pastel painting. I am extremely busy preparing printmaking supplies and watercolor brushes, paints and papers for new units. My afternoon classes are heavily into colored pencil skill building and about to study a unit on patterns. We also just hung our first competitive show of the year in a gallery in Kansas. Whew!!! My room is cluttered with supplies coming and going!
Back to the dictionary series.....
A couple of these drawings are already spoken for and shipped off to new homes. I hope to complete enough for a booth at our spring art festival - which means digging up funds for frames. Since I've been getting such a positive response about this series, I plan to investigate the cost of making some Giclee prints.
This morning I borrowed a French dictionary from the French teacher down the hall from my classroom. I think some drawings on copies of a French dictionary would be lovely to try.
Back to my classroom and hopefully some time for playing.
