Every year my children's school has their annual "Spring Gala". The gala consists of dinner, dancing and a silent auction. This years event will be held at the "Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace". This venue is absolutely beautiful. The ballroom is a replica of the White House's "East Room".
The children in each class room are required to make an art project to be auctioned off during this event. While attending CHA this year, I saw Vintaj Natural Brass Company's fabulous new line of altered blank canvases. I knew what 6B's class project would be.
The children used Vintaj's 3" by 3" blank canvases which were painted using Ranger Ink Adirondack Dabbers and Alcohol Inks. After they used a paint brush to lightly highlighted their creation with "Pearl Ex". Next they selected charms and embellishments that were riveted onto the piece. The result is absolutely beautiful. The children created 28 individual works of art. The colors are alive and vibrant, a perfect complement to Vintaj Brass. My next step is to take the 28 canvases to the framer. They will be mounted to create one work of art. When I have the final piece of art, I will post photos.
Attached are a few photos of the finished little works of art and the children creating them. The bottom photo is my handsome son "Garrett".
