Some Humor For You

Remember, It’s the process not the product that is important….

I was going through some studio photos today and came across a few projects that didn’t go as planned. These photos are from Pee Wee Art. The kids loved the process of the projects, but we grown-ups found humor in the end results.

some bloopers from class

1) The theme of this class was ’emotions’. These projects were from the “happy table”. Kids glued a happy face to their paper and painted with yellow & red. The purpose was to mix the two colors and create a happy orange color, but the kids were really drawn to the red resulting in pictures that looked like maniacal children burning in flames. It was silly.

2) Last week, all classes made recycled paper pulp pictures for Earth Day. Since the Pee Wee students are so young, I wanted them to focus on the texture and manipulative qualities of the pulp. I made 2 pulps – one from junk mail and the other from old construction paper. The end result was something that resembled ground beef or perhaps vomit. Hmm, well, at least the kids really enjoyed the project & had no idea what we adults were snickering about.

3) This last photo is from Valentine’s Day. I thought it would be sweet to create a parent/child piece. The children traced their parents hands & then the parent traced their child’s. The kids colored in with crayons & painted with red, glittery watercolors to create a resist. The end result looked a little gruesome. I decided to change the paint colors for the afternoon class and they turned out much better! 😉
