My grade seven students were learning about Greece and the teacher wanted some ideas how to integrate art into this theme. Part of the unit involved writing a myth. In social studies class the students wrote their myth and painted their ideas on large construction paper and what integration was happening in the art room? They created amazing paper mache red and black figure Greek vases with recycled cardboard pieces and painted their myth on them. See more about this lesson

I love incorporating literature whenever possible. This charming rabbit was inspired by The Hare and the Tortoise by Brian Wildsmith. It is painted with acrylic, and then oil pastel textures were added over the top. I may just do this with my little ones next month!

t Information This painting marks a new direction in my art. I have always admired the practice of architecture and wanted to somehow integrate it into my paintings. The goal was to design a structure that will signify the solution to a problem. The problem is modern day communities and the way they are structured. This is my solution. It’s a cluster individual homes. Everything is close and safe. Imagine living here! Size: 18″ x 24″ Medium: Acrylic on canvas
