Our communities girl's high school allows me to come in once a week, and teach art. I love being around the girls, and do the class for free.

Finding unique things for us to do is my goal, and I like to incorporate unusual items. In one of my hunts I found sculptures that are made from 1 knee high, a coat hanger and a block of wood. I'll post the particulars after the pictures. And there are a lot, but I had to share some of these completed pieces.

Ready for paint:

Some of the completed projects:

To make the sculpture:
one coat hanger, one knee high, one black of wood, glue, paints, brushes

Cut off coat hanger end, and make two hole in the block of wood. Stick one end of the coat hanger in a hole, then begin to shape the hanger however you like. Stick the other end into the block of wood, and glue the ends. Take the knee hi and pull it over the hanger, and over the block of wood.

Mix white glue with water at about half and half, and begin to paint onto the knee hi. Coat very well, letting dry between coats till the knee hi becomes stiff. Then paint however you would like. Done! Smiley
