at the beginning of the year we made ‘painting suits’. on the left is Grace, my aide Karen’s daughter. and remember Delaney and her mom ?
unfortunately my little point and shoot cant pick up the detail of all the tiny paint dots ALL OVER THEM!!!
technicolored hair was quite the norm the past two days!
these kids are 3…and boy did they enjoy winding up and hurling that paint!! i was proud of the mess we created! again, i look WAY cleaner that i actually was.
guesssssss who we are studying now?!? you guessed it! Jackson Pollock. it’s been quite an adventure the past two days. the mess behind me was just one day. we did that much
yesterday and i spent all my time between parent conferences last night til 9pm cutting it down for their portfolios. today’s work is going to be hung in the hallways on display! you have
to be wondering, OMG what did the parents say when their kids came home with paint EVERYWHERE?! well, because it’s not everyday a kid can break every rule in the art room like this, i warned the
parents with a note home. told them be prepared(!) and send your child in old clothes….and i’m not responsible..lol. a big thanks to a few of my moms who graciously spent time with us, wiping down
walls, floors AND children! you only live once…and shoot, they’re kids- let them get messy, right?! they loved it. so did i. and i’m going to sleep VERY well tonight. HA!
so adam gets home from work…worn out and tired from his long annoying and stressful day. instead of reacting like a normal person does after a sucky day, he decides to be slap happy. my sister Ali bought an exercise ball and it took the two of them to get it blown up. adam being a boy and wanting to act a fool INSIDE THE HOUSE, decides to test the strength of the ball. something else you need to know about adam- he will try ANYTHING if there is a video camera present. (he proved that in college when he stuck is tongue to a frozen railing! DER?!) anyway, watch and enjoy how we are a self entertaining bunch. the best part is the scream ali lets out at the very end. HA.
