My Stitched Papercut Map Inspired by Matisse


 
Saturday morning I felt I needed to create,  to stitch together the remaining "leave' shape that I colored & cut weeks ago using an page from an old map book.  … Iooking for in that paperblock  I found  my drawing "women with a green hat ", I drew over a year ago.

last night I stitched the forms together.  
I use trasparent paper to design the stitches....   unconsciously I can see that I was inspired by Henri Matisse 
...it is a wonder how the creative process .....

Reuse Cardboard : Mobile, SeaShells

This is a great summer artproject ! reUse!  REpost !!
...

This summer project, cardboard mobile "shells" was hanged on the outside swing.

First they created the cardboard collage; on a pre cut recycled cardboard they glued squared shape precut cardcoard. After covering one side of the cardboard they turned the cardboard over and glued shapes on the reverse side. This step was repeated at least twice, and then put aside to dry.
 
 
 
The second object on the mobile is made from wavy cardboard. The shape was stapled to create a 3 dimension shape looking like a shell. The wavy side (outer side) is painted with gauche. For the inner side, I added glue to the paint and with a spoon color sand was poured on the object.

Van Gogh Landscape , Clay Artproject



















Beautiful work of art were made inspired by Van Gogh landscape drawing during 2 lessons.
A line drawing was choosen, I made 4 options, I simplifed Van Gogh drawings found in the internet.
On a heavy cardboard a rectangle was drawen the size of the line drawings.
From clay a block rectangle was made over the drawn rectangle.
With a pointy tool they traced the line illustration on the clay.
Once the landscape illustration was traced they were ready to work on the clay.
The lines of the drawing were formed with dry sticks and cotton rope.
 
 

















Dotted designs were embossed with a variety of tools in all the areas of the landscape.
Last stage was to put a light layer of glue and let it dry.
The second lesson, the clay was dry.
A heavy layer of glue was rubbed on and around clay so that the artwork will be strong on the board.
Color gauche were mixed to form the color of the sky and fields .
Last stage was to color the artwork.

They all created beautiful clay tablet.

I was inspired to share after  reading "Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists" blog
...."As Picasso said, "Bad artists copy. Good artists steal." Feel free to steal any ideas you like and use them in your own way. It's extra nice when you link back, so the chain of sharing grows stronger. Big thanks to those teachers who share their ideas for the benefit of kids in art classes everywhere!".....Thank you Mrs Knight
