I also had to have this plaque, which also features a bird.
Imagine my surprise and delight when she package everything in this adorable bag!
Then there is one of the hands-on activities from the Arts Festival, featuring, of course, birds.
Some of the projects featured at the Arts Festival featured birds as well.
Fifth grade carousel animal done in oil pastel.
Student working on her quetzal.
Clay owls made by first grade. You can find the directions here.
And Wild & Wiry Birds made by my second graders. (The word balloons were added just for the art show)
So it only makes sense that I give away this little guy.
I got the idea from a photo on Flikr and have come to find out that a similar idea was featured in Arts & Activities magazine. My student teacher, Kinsey, and I modified the bird to make it our own style. While I will be blogging instructions for these very soon, this is your opportunity to have one, in hand, so you can see all the details up close.
In order to be chosen to receive this ceramic bird, all you have to do is leave me a comment giving me some feedback about my blog; something you have enjoyed, something you would like to see, something that really annoys you, etc. I will randomly choose the winner on Wednesday, March 30th. Good luck and thank you for following Mrs. Picasso's Art Room!
