This summer has already been filled with lots of fun art projects for my favorite 3rd grader. While I was working on a commission for a jellyfish painting she wanted something to do in the studio with me. I taught her how to use a straw to create her own jelly fish. I think this could be a fun lesson on working with line and it should be noted that she worked on this for about 5 hours yesterday and woke up and asked to make more. Her samples and in progress are on the top. My work in progress is underneath. Might write up a lesson plan for this one.

It turns out that I didn't have enough time or material to do the repousse lesson at all three schools. Fourth grade did watercolor sunsets behind drawn liberty portraits, while third grade did cut paper cityscapes as a background.
