Just a few photos from February 14, as I had to leave early. The kids drew bugs, butterflies, hearts or whatever onto Shrinky Dink, using color pencils.
Here's the shrinky dink before it goes in the oven.
And it's soooo fun to watch the plastic bend and shrink and grow tiny.cool huh? Everyone loves shrinky dink! The kids went on to make pins, rings, and charms.

First the kids cut fun foam into heart shapes to create printing plates for making valentines.
They did rubbings on them first, with crayons, then overprinted with paint onto the same paper.
Then, we went on to gyotaku fish printing on cloth

|demo painting by Jane LaFazio|
|demo in progress by Jane LaFazio|
I brought in some tree silhouettes for inspiration, letting them know they could mix and match different elements, or simply draw their own tree.
They gathered their paints.
They had their clay, to paint from last week too.
I think they created some wonderful paintings!
