(Brenda - and anyone with holiday lessons -
Please share your poinsettia batik directions and the Bethlehem tissue paper
project lesson. Sound beautiful.)
Do you work from the same pre-planned curriculum each year.?
I have found to keep my creative energy up and flowing I need to switch
each year or I get bored and If I am bored then it might be catching. There
projects that my kids look forward to and ask about from time to time. The
plexiglass stained glass is one they all want to do as it makes a great gift.
Plexiglass stained glass
Plexiglass scraps from an auto glass repair place
Cut into 5 x 8 or whatever size you disire. I like angels this size. Drill
hole for hanging
Make a cartoon of the desired design. If the final design will be hung with
the glue on the back remind students that their printing needs to be
backwards in the planning-
Place design behind plex and outline with black glue. Let dry
Next class paint in each section with thin acrylic paint or colored tissue
Outline edge with black glue or an attractive ribbon.
