bugs on the loose

My 6th grade artists have done a fantastic job this semester drawing insects and insect family members. We were inspired by the work of Dutch artist M.C. Escher and other visual artists to create insect value studies.
I asked the students to "break the borders" with their insects and to push beyond the edges of the paper to create bugs all over as if they were truly crawling all over. My students looked at photographs that I had for them to closely study from observation the insects body parts, legs, textures and more! The students did an excellent job creating realistic renderings of the insects.
Here are just a few of the results. These drawings are "on the loose" all over our hallway and many students have stopped to check out these beautiful drawings. I am very pleased with their work.
Be on the lookout for an insect invasion coming soon to a hallway near you! Be Well and Enjoy!

thank you from the bottom of our "apple" hearts

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful people who showed up to our M.F.E.O. Designs booth at Warwick Applefest yesterday! We had a wonderful day and I don't want to leave out another important element that showed up, the SUN! Thank you mother nature for working with us and allowing us blue skies!
We had a wonderful day and so enjoyed meeting so many great new and old friends and family! I am so grateful that my father was able to attend as well as he is facing double knee replacement, we gave him the honorary green chair out front and he became our mascot! He is a wonderful man!
Here are a few shots of our booth!
By the end of the day the booth was less packed and that was a great thing! If you were unable to attend please visit our site by clicking here and let us know if you are interested in one of our original handmade pieces of art.
Be Well, Enjoy and THANK YOU!
