This was one of the projects from the community art class that I teach on Saturday mornings. We did a quick little activity with a sharpie, a colored pencil, and a pipe cleaner to get us in the creative mood.
In case you are wondering, they are portraits of the artist Salvador Dali who had a wicked awesome mustache. I saw a project similar to this awhile back but had forgotten about it until the other night when….
…we were up with our kids at like midnight still pulling off base boards and working on the never ending reflooring project of doom. It was late and we were all tired that’s when Simon dipped into a package of stick on mustaches I bought at the dollar store.
This is how I found him—wielding a crow bar on the floor with pajamas and a mustache. It was awesome and within minutes of this photo we were all wearing them. And it reminded me of the Dali idea which I used Saturday in my art class.
And speaking of the floors Grace even chipped in and did her part—however her part consisted entirely of painting pictures on the sub floor (keeping herself happy and busy) while we worked around her. Earlier in the month my students had been on the floor painting giant leaves and bugs and it made me think Grace would love doing something similar.
So I’ll end where I started back at my art class. One thing always seems to lead to another in my brain in one gigantic circle. Hopefully however the loop will soon be rid of the kitchen floors and re embrace the sewing machine.
PS—Don’t you just love kids artwork? I mean seriously, look at those portraits. It’s the same subject but all of them are so different and then there’s the mustaches and the hair-do’s! Brilliant.
