We just put up our Christmas tree, so forgive me for the Christmas tree kick I find myself on this week. I can’t help myself. Christmas trees are fun to make and you can make them as simple or detailed as you want.

For our Christmas tree project, we chose a simple triangle shape with a rectangle trunk and circle bulbs. I think the clean lines of the simple shapes worked well and would be perfect for artists of all ages.
I know that there is still about a month left in the summer and as much as I don’t want to rush it, I am excited for the fall. I am! I admit it. Autumn is my favorite season and I’m not ashamed to say it. I am a fan of the fall.
I am also a fan of Andy Warhol. Here I am with his wax sculpture at Madam Tussauds.
A funny thing happened at my daughter’s preschool last week. One of the teachers mentioned to me that my daughter talks to her about all of the crafts that we do at home. She said to me in a very puzzled voice that my daughter was telling her about Kandinsky. This made me smile. I gave her a little lesson on Kandinsky last month and then did an art project with her inspired by his works. She remembered it well and when she sees circles now, she observes that they look like a Kandinsky. We did the same with Jackson Pollock last month & this weekend we learned about one of my personal favorites, Andy Warhol.
