New Paint Trays
I also got some flourescent and gold paint at Blick's for our James Rizzi cityscape project that we start tomorrow.
Then I went to Smart & Final (our local small big-box store) and got a bunch of cups for an upcoming Chihuly project and some sponges. A little while back someone was writing about using sponges for the kids to wipe brushes on as they paint (I think it was Phyl over at There's a Dragon in my Art Room, but I'm not sure). I do that myself at home, but haven't used them before at school. So now each set of desk partners as a sponge to use:)
Here are the foam core "buildings" kids will be painting tomorrow to start their cityscape. They will start painting warm and cool colored buildings with opposite colored windows this week. If there is time, they will also do a quick background. Next week we'll add the details. I've been looking forward to doing this since last Spring when I cut the foam core!!!
