Hey everyone- Check out these HORSES!
- Dear Art Educators,
Linda Woods did my "dream lesson" on horses. Sometimes I honestly think we
share the same brain....but she is way out west in Houston and I am in Lima,
Ohio - so we just might be magically connecting -- who knows?
Check the all in Lower School Gallery -- especially 3-1! Those are the
Did all of you have a chance to see Linda's own Jewelry?
Also see Oceans - those are new.
Linda - I can't wait to send your student work to Beatrice so she can see
that third graders find horses magical too. I guarantee she will write to
you (let's see if I win this one?). Folks, Beatrice is the one who sent me
my first New Year's Card --and it isn't even the year of the Horse (smile).
I was so tickled to get it.
I won't be doing a theme page for all animals -- Fish will come "soon" - I
am still kicking myself in the rear for throwing away my paper mache fish!
What an idiot! I could have just put another layer of paper mache on them
and tweaked them into a dynamite lesson for you all...How about a fish
trophy? A bird fish - and elephant fish? anything (Fish trophy I got that
idea from another list member --that lesson idea to come, too). I could have
painted them "in the style of" - I could have done any number of things
with them....silly - silly me.....Now I will just have to make a new fish.
Ah ha! Maybe in honor of "Forest Hunter" who passed away so suddenly? His
brother Tiger is doing quite well (fortunately).
Well...rambling on....Enjoy Linda's horses!
