So I just HAD to share with you all what I did in art class today. :)
To explain a bit, this class is all about elementary art projects that we could use in our future classroom. So she teaches us how to do them, and then we actually get to do them. It's fun. :)
So today, we used something called Scratch Art Paper. It's kind of hard to explain, but you know the "scratch & win" lottery tickets and things of that nature? Where you scratch off the covering to see what's underneath. That is the basic idea of this. Except instead of "winning" words underneath, there are colors. One of the ones I did was a multi-colored background with a black scratch-off covering. So what you did was take a small wooden stick and scratched off the black to reveal the colors underneath, and then you create a picture. It was so much fun! There are also papers that only have one color underneath, and I did one of those, too! :)
So, instead of trying to explain anymore, here are pictures of my pictures! They are way cooler in person, by the way. :) But this will give you an idea. :)
