Happy New Year everyone!
Welcome to my blog! This is the first post for the new year. If you have seen my website you know that I am an artist educator who has taught for 35 years. In thinking back over 2013 in terms of my teaching I decided to share an exciting project that my students finished right before winter break. It’s called a tunnel book. I learned about these books from watching Building Skills in the Arts with artist educator Ann Kresge.
Her video can be seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJgLfps6_lU.
Here is a photo of a demo I made to show my students. I used one of my imaginary animal illustrations and cut it into a foreground, middle ground and background. If anyone has tried making tunnel books I’d love to hear about your experiences.
