Watercolor Painting Collage Activity – Archive Post

I found this awesome activity from 2010 sitting in my archives, just begging to see the light of day again. So here it comes to your email box this morning as a reminder to pull out your watercolors and have a little fun creating a beautiful painting for your wall.

Prang Semi Moist Watercolor set of 16 classic colors

If you really get into water coloring this week, you may wish to take a look at this one too:

In addition, I wanted to share a free watercolor lesson plan set. I created it to go along with my Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 plans that you can use as a stand-alone watercolor course.

Sculpey Summer Fun – Archive Post

I was going through my summer art archive posts and stumbled upon one of my favorite summer art activities for children.

Sculpey!

Sculpey Projects

This clay is not like your typical clay that dries out if you don’t use it all right away. It’s flexible and easy to form into lots of fun projects like beads, animals, and pots. It remains pliable until you bake it. Our family has created many things with Sculpey and I wanted to introduce you to or remind you about this product.

Here’s the link to my original post about Sculpey: Sculpey Projects – Great Summer Fun.

If you’re looking for a book to use along with your Sculpey, I just found a good one at our public library: Clay Lab for Kids by Cassie Stephens. This book has a section on using polymer clay and shares some fun and even practical projects you can create. I have added a link at the bottom of this post.

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 Sample Collage

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 plans include a unit on using polymer clay. The book I suggest as the resource for those projects is called Polymer Clay by Irene Dean.

However you decide to use Sculpey this summer, I know you’re going to enjoy some creative time with your children.

Music Appreciation Monday – Grieg

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts @harmonyfinearts.org Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

We are going to listen to Edvard Grieg this week for our Music Appreciation Monday. Grieg is from Norway. Can you find Norway on a map?

Note: This is a rather long selection so if you want to shorten your listening time, stop at around 13 minutes where there is a natural break in the music. You won’t miss the break…it is very obvious! Plus I’m not sure who the image is that comes on the video at around 19 minutes.

Piano Concerto in A Minor Opus 16

 

This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 7 plans if you would like to listen to more Grieg.
