THE ART ROOM: Salt Dough Houses

Our 9 – 12 year old students made these impressive salt dough houses in-relief (a sculptural technique where raised elements remain attached to a background of the same material). After sculpting and baking, students used an acrylic wash to paint their houses, which helped emphasize textural elements.

THE ART ROOM: Kenya in Watercolor

Our Sip & Splatter students painted beautiful watercolor scenes of the Kenyan plains. We started from scratch with paper-stretching, lightly drew our images, then began filling them in with color. The result was truly impressive.
