Inspired

Map collage birds
Zamorano Fine Arts Academy
The first grade students at the Zamorano Fine Arts Academy in San Diego, CA
did a project inspired by my Map Birds, aren't they amazing?
You can visit their teacher's blog at this link.
Thanks so much Don! I'm honored.

Adorable! Whenever I go visit my niece and nephew we all sit down to make art. And they loveeee quietly peeking over to see what I'm doing. They don't want to be too obvious about copying me.. it's so cute! But i think it's the greatest compliment in the world! ♥

Those are amazing!

BTW, I showed my husband your birds, and he agreed -- they're meant to be in a grouping behind the bed in our new bedroom!

Thank you for the referral to that blog. It's a valuable resource for teachers who are left on their own with no formal art lessons available in their schools as budgets shrink, but who are seeking out creative ideas for simple fun art projects for their kids.

Also, I am continually impressed at how your cute little birdies are finding their way into so many hearts and minds!

Amazing work! We have a very similar art program at my daughter's school which we feel SO fortunate to have. A great teacher and school support of the arts makes a world of difference. We even had the Gee's Bend quilters come out to work with the students one year to make a quilt.
