The past week I've been working a new mobiles for this and that.
I sewed up  bunches of white mobiles for the beehive classes to design and color.  The younger beehive crowd added big bold watercolor to their mobiles. Older kids drew intricate patterns and designs with color pencils and added touches of watercolor. 

The best part.. they love them!

wooden fish and watercolors

This is one of my favorite projects from summer art.  
We had a school of these wooden fish 
and painted them up with watercolors and tiny brushes.  
We couldn't stop there, 
they wriggled onto painted bases attached with wire.

watercolor + color pencil

Two of my favorite mediums,
tried and true over and over.
Always fresh and always vibrant,
 I love the combination. 
We paint lots of small watercolors at beehive.  

After mounting them, 
we played with the pencil and a little sharpie marker.

Getting our SPIN art ON!  
An old fav keeps getting better and better.

New paints from ikea, just the right size bottle, great colors and needle size tips. I also filled many squirt bottles with an assortment of tempera paints. 
Lots of circles pre-cut in all sizes and shades. 

My tip.. use bottles with a very narrow tip.  That way, the paint is easily controlled and cool designs are played with before the spinning starts.
(salad) Spinners also from ikea.
