Grace's Art show......

Grace with one of her teachers
Starting in the Fall, both Grace and Dax took IU Fall art classes. It's Grace's second year doing it and she loves art. They participate in one class for 8 weeks and then at the end they have an art show for parents, family and friends. The instructors are IU students who are studying to be art teachers, so this gives them practice!
A Mermaid picture done with chalk and paint!
Grace had to design the picture first and then later added clay to make the picture come alive.
She also made this basket out of clay.... the one with the pink handle!
The project this time was a Indiana driver's license for an animal....
It's a picture of a unicorn and here are the words she wrote all by herself:
Name: Uniey
Age: 1 Year
Favorite Food: Apples
Favorite Color: Blue
Hobbies: Flie
Each student gets one art project that is left in the special galleries till after the holidays. They picked Grace's fairy house.
They got to make these super cute fairy houses out of recycled materials!!
During the big kid's classes, I got to hang out with the two smallest boys for about an hour which was nice to have some one on one time with them!  Dax's class lasted an hour so once I picked up him I would have all 3 boys for 1/2 hour till Grace's class ended. During one of those times, I took these pictures of the boys!
Up next....
