Spring Fling's Almost Here

Spring Fling buzz is spreading down the halls of North Beach. The kids are very proud of their collaborative masterpieces. We'll be hanging the finished works at Diva Espresso's 80th and Greenwood location all month. March 3rd-16th we'll feature kindergarten, first and second grade projects. On March 16th we'll rotate in 2/3 split through forth grade projects, (fifth grade will be in on the bulletin boards at school in a couple of weeks). Stop in with your kids so they can see their projects up on the walls!

I've included another sneak peak of the kid's work below. Both second grade classes created colorful "Impressionist Gardens" by collaging tissue paper onto canvas.

and finally, little hands seal it all up with some matte medium
Room 5 took charge of their project and created beautiful portraits inspired by Pablo Picasso.

Spring Fling has always been my favorite event at North Beach. It has been so much fun working with the kids on their projects. Now just a few more weeks until the big event!


  1. You are amazing! I am so inspired by your ideas and your work with the kids, to do art with my class of preschoolers, and with my daughter's 1st grade class. We've had lots of fun. I think I will try the tissue paper flower collage above next with the preschoolers, without the mod podge, however - or I'll apply it later myself.

    1. Glad that you have enjoyed the projects! I am always looking for projects that can be easily adapted so the kids are doing all the work. Let them paint the final coats on and then just smooth it out.

  2. I love this idea! I would like to invite you to link up this post to Money Saving Monday so others can find this great idea as well. I hope to see you there.

    Thank You,

  3. What art medium did you use to create the Pablo Picasso portraits? Is it oil pastel?

  4. Where did you find colorfast tissue paper?
