This was really fun. We had to find a picture that we wanted to make out of mud. My group decided to makie a hare. You can see the real picture beside our "painting". We had to draw it in chalk first--that is the red... and then we had to put the right shades of mud in where its suppossed to be. Mr. Sands went to Lowes or someplace, and got a bag of dirt for like 5 dollers. It had multch all in it, so it was really hard to paint with it.
Okay, thare is one thing I must say... this looks SO much better in person.
But the project was fun, I liked having the choice of choosing what person we could draw. I could have added more shadows to both faces, to make it look better. By the way, this is a picture of me and my mother when I was like seven.

This was really fun. We had to think of something and cut it out on a piece of paper, then hold it in front ofa bright light. I cut out a horse, and then taped it onto another piece of construction paper. I held it in front of the light so the shadow shows through. I also cut out the eye, so there would be three different shades of light showing through.

This is a great use for old cassette tapes you want to throw away. I had a picture of a bunny in my hand and decided to recreate it using the tape. It was hard to cut the right length of tape to match, and it was also hard to glue the tape down without it sticking to my fingers.
