vintage halloween

The best time of year again for art making fun...playing Halloween with some vintage images to create these 12 by 12 scrapbook page samples for Mrs. O'Leary's Art Store.

It was a challenge to turn these sweet
portraits into super Halloween silliness.  

I enjoyed turning the people into characters and then layering up the images, papers, ephemera and stamps.

You can see more 12 by 12s here, here, and here.

i can...?

Something recently new to the art
room is the lovely "I CAN" board.
Two "I can" statements are listed per grade level.
These describe what the students will be able
do by the end of the class or current project. 
I just had to use The False Mirror eye from Magritte
and Warhol's Campbell's Soup can for visual reference!
Hopefully taking attention away from
the crazy art teacher handwriting!!!
Good thing I CAN type my blog posts, huh?!?!
