Great project with such interesting subject by smallhandsbigart. Children loved it and they loved to learn proportions and understatement of drawing the animals properly. They had so much fun when doing these, it is certainly not the last time or the last motive. But I bet it will be hard to beat it!

Minis were enjoying wood. They were making all sorts of animals. A lovely relaxed open play.
Our two days long camp was inspired by folk art. We were making our own arpilleras, that are actually connected to our life not the one in Chile, so maybe they should be Berlilleras.
I came across this lovely project at smallhandsbigart and I am immensely grateful for this site loves to share and give opportunity to others to try their great ideas. I might just not think of it myself.
So I had tones of different scraps of cloth and much of glue and this is what happened. Love it!
Lovely black paper – chalk project. These two are working together so well that I think they really are my favourite materials. But just same goes for black paper -gouache/acrylics. I am not sure which is better.
So we spoke about Modigliani, quite a sad story too, actually one of those rare ones that you really can’t give to children, not in full, no matter how you try.
Smaller children worked with chalk, bigger children with acrylics and gouache. Amazing results!!
Another project for our school’s unit. Self-portraits with beautiful backgrounds. Children well instructed to use all sorts of lines and then painted over, in between and around them with watercolours.
I found this project so positive and beautiful. It was suggested by the class teachers which also did the photography, the little interviews and writing with the children. I only did the art bit, quite easy really. I’d enjoy professional assistants. Like in real life, ha!
I found this project on internet, I think it was by workshop genius artbar but I can’t find it any more.
This project is connected to our school unit and was done by preschool children. This are their self-portraits and many do look alike.
A sweet little stone project for little artist. They were making bugs and their large families. Unfortunatelly I had no time for a camera and took these few photos with my phone. Better than nothing.
And here I present the third and oldest group being busy with mother’s day presents. Children were making beautiful mobiles. Leaves and feathers made of clay hanged on beautiful branches shaped and formed by unflagging three: see, salt and sun! They came all the way from Cantabria in our suitcases instead of shoes and other useless clothes, of course!
The Midi’s were fully busy with their Mother’s day preparations too. They’ve made self portraits. We used a special paper (kiss print) and some chocolate boxes for frames. A really sweet little gifts these were!
Well that special day when kids get probably more excited than mothers! I have to say it is the most wonderful to be the one taking part of it and lead them through.
Mother’s day was this year very big at out studio and all the ages were making different project. This one was done by the smallest. Air drying clay and little hearts. Unfortunatelly I haven’t manage to make the final photos but that’s ok.
