Art into $$ for the Food Bank

gift bags by NHS students
Last Wednesday afternoon was spent at Stanwood High School working with National Honor Society students....decorating shopping bags for Laurie's Boutique.  The idea?? to have the students turn the bags into artsy bags that customers would really want..and for a donation to the food Bank... could have!!  I took in lots of my "stuff" that I use in my mixed media work..buttons, yarns, bells, old jewelry...and glitter!!  It was awesome!  They had a great time and the bags are wonderful.......they are at Laurie's now and will of course still be there fo rthe art Walk on Dec 3rd.  On the 30th I'm working with 4th and 5th graders to make more!!   We'll be using  paper additives, and I will have a lesson on simple design and should be a kick!!
