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!
