I wanted to take the opportunity to post about our Pollock-inspired drip painting which has now been finished and framed. Words cannot express how beautifully it turned out - the framer was even impressed with the cheerful, colorful nature of this abstract painting. I'm afraid this photos does not do it justice - it is even more impressive in person!
I cannot wait to bring it to school next week after the break! Also, some of you may remember our paper cutting excersise from this post. Today, I placed them on a large canvas and gave it a couple of coats of Mod Podge. I think a simple frame would give it a decent finish. The geometric forms and symmetry are eye-catching. Maybe I should send it to IKEA - the colors are just right!
During this vacation, I've also been making some extension materials from Montessori Print Shop. A detailed post about these Geometric Solids Sorting cards will be published once I introduce the materials in the classroom next week:
I just love my laminator! And yes, that is our cat, Lulu on the rug in the background...
Lastly, let it be known, I have finished my research paper for my Montessori training program!!!! (More on that later...)
