Dancing Words

Sandy and her daughter Hannah are both artists.  Here they are at the Plaza Art Fair in Kansas City, Missouri, in September 2009. In the background, you can see a painting of a bird's nest. Coincidentally, Sandy's workshop is called "The Feathered Nest".

My friend Sandy is an artist. I always enjoy her take on her experiences at the art shows and fairs she visits in Kansas City.  Click here to read her post “Fall Back” on her blog “Dancing Words”. Be sure to check out the video of one of Sandy’s art classes from ART-felt Learning at the bottom of this post.

    I’d love to do these with my third grade class. (Grating all those crayons is karma come round :)) In the first ones you did, what was already on the cardboard (white shapes?) that they then added the crayons to?

    Thanks, I’ve been hearing about you for ages from Cathy!

    Hi Jan, ditto about you! The white shapes are rubber glued onto cardboard for printmaking. The crayons are sprinkled on the fabric and then ironed to melt. Yes, hard to grate! My older kids sighed in horror as they watched “other” kids use the crayon shavings that I’ve been saving for almost 10 years for that special artproject.LOL
