For one of my field classes we are doing some projects that we can save as teacher examples, so for this project we watched a video on the illustrator Eric Carle and then proceeded to create our own handmade papers. We then had to use those papers to make a collage of anything we wanted. I immediately knew I wanted to create an animal and, of course, I chose a horse. In the past, I've had illustration projects in which we had to create an illustration based on a set of words, so I chose another word to join my "horse" prompt and "star" came to mind. This made me think of the Horsehead Nebula, so that was my inspiration for this whimsical piece - all made with hand painted papers.
I have a lot more projects to post from last semester - including fun things from my metalworking class! Cast pewter, enameled copper, and welded steel, OH MY! I'll be posting pics very soon!
