An Artist in the Family

Emee had her first school project in January. She had to make something that was related to cold places. She chose to make a paper mache penguin. My mom and I helped get the newspaper ready to be used as paper mache. Then the three of us made the penguin: I put paper mache on crumpled blue cardstock to make the icy landscape while Emee and my mom scuplted the penguin using a fruit juice bottle as a base. The next day Emee and my mom painted the penguin to match the coloring of an emperor penguin and then Emee painted the ice with water flowing up through the cracks (because we didn’t have enough white paint). I think it looks fabulous… take a look!
