Curly Girl on skates

Here is a picture Curly Girl drew of herself. She said she thinks it is what she will look like when she is older......

I think it looks like an illustration. I LOVE IT!

Curly Girl is on a cartoon kick.
One of her friends likes to doodle and makes funny little pictures.
Curly Girl never really got into 'cartooning' before meeting her. She doddled, a lot...but never did cartoons. It is fun to see what her little brain dreams up.

Here are 3 that she did the other day, sorry for the poor was raining outside!

This one is my favorite!

this one she did for a friend...

and this one is just a 'because.'

cute, huh!

Blue Boy...

Here is Curly Girl's latest.
She adores Blue Jays...we have a large nest of them in our yard and she is constantly going out to see what they are doing.
She takes pictures of them....or tries to. They fly off as soon as they hear the patio door knob turn!

Curly's little fishie.....

Curly Girl made her first paper mache sculpture in her after school art class.......I like the seaweed she painted on its side.

Curly Girl had to do a report on a major artist. She choose Dali from the list....not because he was her favorite...but because he hadn't been picked!

We searched some of his works and although most were of his surrelistic period, she found one she loved of these butterflies....

Here is her tray....she is very proud of it.

The main thing she learned in studying Dali is that he liked to surprise the eye by reversing shadows...which you can see in the image and the tray.....

Darlin' Dalmations....

Curly Girl drew a couple dalmations.....both totally different from one another...

This one she did last night...she was thinking of the more stylized dalmations from the Disney movie 101 Dalmations.....

Curly Girl did a self portrait Tuesday night. It took her about an hour.....with 30 minutes devoted to her hair! She was so proud of it. It brought tears to my eyes.
Here is a close up..look at the detail of her curls...

And here she is holding the photo.

There are some differences but for her first GOTTA give her kudos!

Silk painting....

Curly Girl did some silk hankie painting in class the other day. This little fox turned out sooooooo cute. She actually 'drew' the fox with elmer's glue and then let it dry. Then she painted the fox and tree trunk in afterwards. Once everything was dried, I hand washed the hanky and removed the glue.

Cute, huh!

Here is a close up for Spring's sweet, fluffy face.......

Lovely Ladybug........

Here is the toy Curly Girl made for the Toy Society drop. She came up with the idea by herself and then sewed it all together....with just a little help.

Gargoyle box

Here is a little 'gargoyle' box that Curly Girl made in art.
She is so proud of it. A girl in her regular classroom picked it up without asking and broke the lid first thing.

She was very sad at first but we fixed it with a little glue and it looks just fine.......

I thought the gargoyle looked like a little bear (and the wings ARE white) so we are using it as a "Give It To God" prayer appropriate use for something so precious.

kitty in a stocking

This is Curly Girl's second attempt at painting. She picked this thinking it wouldn't be too difficult because it was mainly a head and leg.
It turned out to be a BEAR. The two tone face, the angle of the leg and all the shading on the sock


But, she DID IT! Her teacher pulled me aside and let me know this was a very hard painting to do.....all slightly within ear shot of Curly Girl....sort a made her day!

Kachina Doll

Curly Girl's class was studying Kachina Dolls and part of the project was to create one that represented themselves.

Here is her's

The palette and paints represent her love of artwork
The halo represents her loving and caring about others
The panda outfit represents....nothing....she just liked the fabric. HA!
