Happy Easter and Happy Springtime

This past week students of all ages, levels, and abilities learned about the holiday of "Pysansky" and the tradition of Ukrainian Easter eggs.  They connected and discussed similarities and differences in this cultural art to their own lives. Students practiced design balance and also played with wax resist techniques to create watercolor paintings.  Every student shined in a different part of the process; some in the practicing part and some in the final touches they went above and beyond.  This project was very individualized to each student and their work is each very beautiful and unique!  One ambitious student went above and beyond by placing his egg on a golden pedestal within his own museum. It's priced at $1,000! Note his yellow clearance tag ha ha.  Click on the images to view larger.
