Drawings before 7am in preparation for upcoming workshops
Movin’ and shakin’ on some personal projects this weekend
Looking back at some projects from the past as I plan for future lessons.  This stop motion animation circus was a blast to plan, create, and share with family and friends when we created it as a large group when I taught in a public school. Trying to figure out how to do this on a small scale with limited tech ... hmmmmm any suggestions?  If you’re interested in reading how I coordinated this project on a large scale (and watch the full circus video) seek out the blog post in the link in my profile. #stopmotionanimation #caldercircus #artteachersofinstagram
These came out so much better than I ever thought!  These creatures are actually blank journals that will be made by students in the Academy of Witches this Fall and turned into their reference book of Monsters.  I’m thinking of adding a workshop as well, for students that can’t come to a full session - what do you think?  Also, swipe to see my daughter’s monster book- it came out crazy good as well!
Just spending the few days left before school starts developing some prototypes with my daughter for the upcoming Witch Academy - anyone else spend their day making monster teeth out of #sculpey ?
After school art classes will start next week - we will start off with sculpture, talking about the why and how in art history and making these miniature busts on bottle caps.  A few spots left in ages 6-9 from 3:30-4:30 and 1 spot left in ages 9-12 from 4:30-5:30.  Link in profile!
Up late updating an old body of work
A perfect hot day to wash our babies
I just uncovered this family portrait by my daughter from a few years back.  Being a teacher and an artist you would think I would have a really great storage system ... but I don’t.  We display artwork proudly but then when new work replaces it, I tend to be a stuff it in a cabinet kind of Mom- the upside is it makes cleaning out the cabinets super fun!  What about you all, do you have an artwork system that works well for your family?  I used artsonia for awhile, but fell off of it as a parent

Can’t stop carving ... avoiding all the back to school things I need to do 😏
Everyone is always surprised at how relaxing soft block carving is, I highly recommend it if you’re seeking a satisfying chill@studio activity
