I was working on a power point for my art class on watercolour. After checking out many images on Google and saving several examples including images from Winslow Homer and Helen Frankenthaler....I remember a website that many of my students constantly refer found a lot of images there that span many styles, interests and age appropriate materials. I am always amazed when I visit this website as it celebrates the artistic endeavours of so many styles and interests. I am sure that most of your keen art students have already been there and know about it and I am sure that other students will benefit from looking at art that has been created by millions of artist many of whom art their age.

Also, this website is a huge resourse for artists both traditional and digital. You can download brushes and textures, become a part of groups that share common iterests, etc.

This another promotional project that I completed with my Art class. At first I thought the concept of printing on a mug was a old and cliched idea, but a friend of mine at Artix Ltd. in Kelowna should me a new machine they had installed. I thought that it would be a great alternative way to promote student art work in and out of school. I am presenting these six cups which were created by Kaitlyn Graef to our admin. I hope that they will like them and have some more printed. To do one of the cups is around five to six dollars ( if I remember correctly ). Once I showed them to the students they were actually very excited and they were willing to create their art work on mugs for gifts. Not a bad idea as a Christmas gift.
