As some of you might know, not only do I make my own art but I also make kids make it too, that was a lot of makes so I hope that makes sense.  That's also probably grammatically incorrect. Anyway, I've been having a hard time sleeping so in the meantime I have been browsing for some new projects to do with my Preschoolers and I have come across some amazing Art and Crafts blogs for children.  Here's some of my favorites.
Fem Manuals
The Crafty Crow: A Children's Art Collective
Art Projects for Kids

Also, I have been bad about updating :(  So here is a list of things to come and also my tentative TDL:
-Upload pictures from many past gallery shows including ones way back when to the recent Living Walls: The City Speaks, FLUX/10, and Bellury Kills @MINT Gallery
-Post some cool show cards for our upcoming events
-Post info about the postcard exchange I did with my Summer students
-Post some cool student artwork
-hmmmm, add some pictures of art work I have been working on

Ok that's all for now!
So I have been experimenting with making paper pulp bowls after seeing a friends.  I've pretty much blended anything the blender will take hehe!  Anyway, I'm still not completely satisfied with the final results.  If anyone has done the same and has come out successful please let me know!  As far as now all I have been doing is blending the paper with water and other bits (flowers etc.), straining it, pressing it into a mold, and then after it dries (which seems to take FOREVER), I then varnish.  Anyway here are some of the products....
