Hat Day!

My artist-in-residency started this past week at our local elementary school with 100 students -- we had a fun time.  Since the project is drawing, writing about, and sculpting an object we each cherish, I showed them objects from the art world.   They loved these:
Salvador Dali, Les Montres Molles, 1968

Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Shuttlecocks, 1994

The kids drew their special objects (or sometimes people) on Friday, which also happened to be hat day.

And here's a few drawings from the day:
This is a mustache (not chicken wings) relaxing.  On the right is its water dish.

A sand rail.  (No, I don't know what that is.)

A girl and her video game with sounds.
