STUDENT ART PHOTOS

WIRTZ 05-15-2015: In March, I was at the annual artist-in-residence day at Friendship Learning Center in North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. As we have done for the last several years, we (myself and the fourth grade class) made paper mache' dogs. Okay, we didn't get them THIS finished in just one day-art teacher extraordinaire Alice Tzakais worked with the class in subsequent periods to explore their creativity on these fun pieces. Click on the images above to see more of the students' art. And, thank you to Alice for providing these photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's a Party! Introducing:

The Do-it-at-Home Art Project! NEW!!

Hey Folks! Have you ever dreamed of being a papier mache' artist like Steve Wirtz? No? Well, you may want to try Nada Piņata anyway. It's the fun new do-it-yourself art kit that you can do at home by yourself, or with friends and family. Each Nada Piņata kit comes with a pre-formed wire armature (frame) by wire bending master Steve Wirtz. Also included are shredded newspaper, colored paper, paste ready for mixing (you just provide a large bowl and water) and instructions and tips on how to make your very own papier mache' sculpture the way Steve Wirtz does. But don't worry, just because you make a Nada Piņata or two, it doesn't mean you'll end up as weird as that Wirtz guy. Don't delay! Get a Nada Piņata or two for your next "art night". Have fun, and be creative.

Email now for your Nada Piņata! Only $29.95 FREE SHIPPING (continental U.S.) for a limited time.
