a week of art at the Decordova....

i spent last week at the Decordova creating art with other art teachers for 1 week...it was blissful because it was a studio class for 7 hours a day...working with other teachers and creating! here are some examples of my work...this first piece is self explanatory because...well... art IS cool it is made with wood...the next 2 pieces are created with wood, paper mache, screen, wire etc. i am just showing snippets because i am playing with this technique and concept for a bit... then my wooden box inspired by MS. Nevelson...mine is not complete but i was not feeling the wood vibe that day.....the last 2 are projects i do with my kids i teach...picasso inspired guitars and faces... it was an amazing class with some fabulous women, that i am thrilled i had the opportinity to meet and work with !
