This project has multiple steps, and cannot be completed in just one class, For my students, this is takes about three one hour sessions to complete the whole project. We started our project during our regular Arts and Crafts class and completed the Watercolor portion of the project during last night's Wine and Watercolor class.
This project uses lots of different techniques and everyone's project really show's their individual personalities.
In our first class we painted our eggshells with acrylic paints and created our eggshell mosaics:
|Inez painting her eggshells|
|Kris applying the eggshells to card stock|
We mixed the different shells together to create an interesting combination of colors on our sheet. And we painted Modge Podge on the top of the eggshells as we continued to fill up the card.
As you can see, each student's mosaic sheet turned out very different. Once we finished our mosaic sheet, we left them to dry on the window sill. If needed, we can add more eggshells to the card stock at a later time.
In our Wine and Watercolor class last night, we completed the second step of our project and did our watercolor background for our art piece:

|Hard at work!|

I will post our completed projects after our classes in February.
Today my class will be doing a tied fabric wreath for Valentines Day. I'm very excited about this new project- this is my first time teaching this project- and will post pictures of our masterpieces later this week!
Have Fun and Stay Creative!
