Julian. The kids did great today. Really focusing on drawing what they see. They drew in pencil first, then marker and watercolor.

Here they are painting their clay creatures. I forgot to get a pic of the finished pieces. They did a great job.
Julian designed a commercial plane--interplanetary no less- and a private plan, both with his original logo design.
School is out next weeks, and last week the kids were sooo restless, I decided to channel some of that energy. After they finished painting their clay creatures, I gave them these cardboard airplane kits to paint with markers. Then we went into the park to fly them, and have a distance competition. Jaime was the overall winner!

The kids have just a few more days of school and they are rambuctious! Here's Jonathan and Jaime in a quiet moment.
This week we worked in clay. I brought a ton of pictures in of different animals and had each kid select 3 different animals. Then they drew a picture of one animal, using parts from the 3 to create a mythical creature. Then, they created that animal in clay.
