Fun in the Sun

How was your summer? Did you enjoy enough sunshine and absorbed enough energy for the school year? I hope so. I didn’t post anything over the summer months but I stayed busy… this is one of our free summer projects at a local library: Art in the Sun!

We found our inspiration in the art of Pueblo people, this book and Mexican suns:

We talked about warm and cold colors and designed our suns to have a warm and cool half. We used a pencil to sketch them, sharpie to make them stand out and soft pastels to add some color into them. Then we sprayed it with a hair spray to make sure it does not smudge much. Easy and summery! Makes me wish the fall waited a little bit longer to come… though I am looking forward to the pumpkins.
