Great project with such interesting subject by smallhandsbigart. Children loved it and they loved to learn proportions and try themselves out in realistic animals portrait drawing. They really had so much fun doing these it is certainly not the last time. 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 creative 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” (for midis) and “black paper-gouache” (for maxis) project. These are working so well together that I believe they might just be my favourite painting materials.
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.
Another project for our school’s unit. Self-portraits with beautiful backgrounds. Children were instructed to use all sorts of lines.
I find 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 a similar project somewhere on internet, I think it was by another workshop genius artbar, which loves cardboard, 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 artists. Bugs and their large families were hatched on these trays. 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!
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 too.
