We made tiny houses today, following the reader challenge in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine.
It's spring break, and even though we reminded the kids we'd have class, just two showed up. But it was fine and Nelly and Roxanna had a great time.
My assistant Amy and teen volunteer Monica made these houses.
It was a beautiful day, so we had airplane races near the end of class. That's teen volunteers Monica and Leo, with me, Roxanna and Nelly.

First, select the felt, cut the frame from felt and glue it on the CD case. Then decorate with images of spring.
Sometimes an artist just needs to wear her materials on her head.
If they had time, they drew and painted a watercolor painting for inside the frame.
This bird theme was inspired when the artist saw her two pet parrots kissing!

First, you got the rabbits.
Drawing from images of real rabbits, the kids drew with charcoal, and then cut them out.
Then, they cut easter eggs from the tye dye paper towels they made two weeks ago.
Then, they wove a basket, with construction paper.
and then, composed the picture.
