Musings From the Art Room

Every once in awhile I find a project that makes me so giddy I can't stand it!  And this was one of those projects!  An artist at the Trinity Spotlight on Art show had these adorable paintings of little girls blowing bubbles.  My wheels starting spinning on the ideas for my own kiddos at school!  Self-portraits blowing gum bubbles!!  Aha!
These portraits were made by 5 and 6 year olds.  They are acrylics on canvas...the bubble is a flat bottom wooden ball.  These are the biggest parents pleas project I've made to date! 

Enjoy!!  We are headed to Disneyworld tomorrow....I think I am more excited than the kids.  I can't wait to ride Peter Pan and eat dinner with Winnie the Pooh (we are doing this on Mailey's 10th birthday btw!!)!!  This is our second trip with the kids to Disney.  The first was on New Year's Eve like 7 years ago.  Crazy.  Crazy.  Hopefully this time it will be a little less crowded!!  We have no plan of action or hand book.  We just plan to go and enjoy.  I think people that over plan a Disney trip miss out on some of the magic of the trip.  And besides our kids are older and no strollers will make navigating the parks much easier!

Where does one buy a flat bottom wooden ball?? I'd love to teach this to my after school art kiddos, but need to purchase the balls as you mentioned. My email is itsmecassiemae@gmail.com I'm an art teacher and love this lesson! Hope to hear from you!

Can you please post for all to know where to buy the flat bottom balls? :) I am teaching art for the first time this year and would love to do this lesson also. Thanks!

What size were the wooden ball did you use? 2", 1 1/2" ?
I saw several wooden ball sizes on Amazon for sale - but I am not sure what size to buy.
