I find that some of my best ideas are born when I am driving or walking alone. Once I see something interesting it will generally "percolate" for awhile as I work out the details (materials to use, Art Standards to incorporate, artists that might have related works, etc). Occasionally the art idea will occur to me immediately; more often it will lay dormant for days or weeks before becoming fully formed. Sometimes I use the photos I take in Smartboard lessons for kids to talk about and other times they just provide inspiration for me.
|I liked the patterns in this window display.|
|More patterns here, but I also like how they made their trees from old pieces of wood (or picket fence slats) just lashed together.|
|Love these stacked cube frames. Kids could make these out of painted papers and stack their own sculptural works.|
|I'm not sure how I might use this polar bear, but I sure loved the window!!!|
