Wrist Candy

When I began this post last Spring, I was surrounded by a delicious selection of greenery when inside my little bungalow. It warms the soul and keeps my values in check. Thank you, Earth.
And because I am grateful of all that our mother earth has to offer, I try to make beauty from the things I would otherwise throw away. If you have read my previous posts, you know I fancy hand painted papers. I want to share an art experience that I introduced to my third and fourth graders recently.

I wanted to keep the focus on color mixing and less on creating a composition so we used the primary colors and white to create a large selection of color swatches painted on newspaper rectangles.

Then we cut a small selection of color choices into strips and covered paper towel roll slices in blocks of color. Details were collaged over the basic rectangular blocks. Negative shapes were saved and used as well.

Holes were punched on the ends of the cut slice of paper towel roll and ribbon was looped through for an easy tie.

Make your, or someone else’s, wrist smile soon! -MJ
