As requested, we made Day of the Dead shrines AGAIN! A perfect activity for this time of year. Here are a bunch more pictures of the AMAZING work my students have produced in just a few hours!
Here is the outside of the same Pirate-themed shrine made out of an Altoids tin!
This is a large piece, full of details and color....
And look at this happy fellow basking in the shade on top!
This is a great composition, two halves of the whole, split twice... lovely arrangement.
A close up of the side...
Another petite composition assembled in an Altoids Tin, complete with roses, tea cup, pearls and pretty bows
Here is the outside of the tin, decorated with layers of tissue paper and hand written music.
Check out this splendid tower - multi levels of creativity and imagery
Even more decoration and sparkle on the back side
These calm images grace the inside of a slender cd mailer tin
Beautiful work from beautiful people.
Here's a new shrine (to fashion?) I made during this week's classes and a few original skeletons made of pipe cleaners....
Here's a Frida Kahlo Skeleton to go with my costume for work on the 31st...
Here's one more skeleton
I designed it with white paint on black to A. save money on printing, and B. because I have finally started my October Dress Up Challenge (Steampunk) and was really happy with the way my clock details were coming out on the black paper...
Here is a pretty close to final version... It will probably be tweaked some more, but at least I am past both the staring-at-the-blank -page phase... AND, the I've-worked-allllll-day-on-this-and-it's-garbage-phase! Thanks to Elsie, Brennan and Amanda for your excellent feedback... SHAZAAAAAAAMMMM
