November 2012Well I've finally done it!I've started private art classes in my house, on my dinning room table!Teaching kids art while giving them a taste of English.A fun way to introduce them to a new language.I have insisted on small groups so that I can give the best of myself & provide them a fun and intimate enviroment.
Quiet frankly I don't know who has more fun!?
Theme 1 : Jungle Animals-
We listened to Animal Boogie http://store.barefootbooks.com/the-animal-boogie-6.html (my all time favorite)and then got creative!
Here you can see my first group (grades 1 -3)

July 2010This one took place in Wales , in my dear friend Sarah's kitchen
The kids each got a white pillow case and a selection of colours ,then they get to paint whatever they would like to have on their own pillow...look at these lovely artworks that came out of these awesome kids!!!!
First they start with designing the artworks & then drawing their outlines, music becoming a destinct theme, possibly do to the fact that Sarah's family are amazingly talented musicians and Nic had them singing all weekend?
