Geckos

Bless their little hearts. I felt so horrible by the time Art Club started, I just wanted to go home and lay down. The kids didn't get a lot more instruction than this: "This is Sculpey. It is a kind of clay that you cook in an oven. Here are some samples of geckos made out of Sculpey. Create one of your own."

They did get a bit more than that, but I wouldn't claim that it was instruction of any quality.


The kids seemed to enjoy it though.

Okay, here's proof that my brain is really tired. I looked at those photos I posted, and wondered why the water spots on that black paper haven't dried up yet. Duh.

If you're looking for art supplies for the classroom, or even hard to find supplies, you might want to check out www.artsupplies.newsmartdeals.com for a great selection and deals. On this website you can bid or buy directly from the seller. I just thought this comment might be helpful to teachers out there. You're doing a great job.

We love sculpey around here. We discovered it's a great way to learn about blending colors. I'm so sorry you've been sick for such a long time. I'm hoping you're feeling at least a little bit better as you read this. It must be so painful to have to be on with so many children when you'd rather be horizontal. Sending you a big hug and a virtual cup of tea! I also want to thank you for your constant support. I'm so grateful and regret that I can't come visit as much as I used too. You're always in my thoughts and I get especially excited to see that you've stopped by. Your snips continue to amaze and delight me. You remain my paper-cut idol!
