Artist of the Week: Snowmen
She looks so cute all bundled up in her beach towel and I thought it was fitting for this week since it's warm, but I'm featuring her snowmen.
Just after winter break Rebecca brought home a charming project that demonstrated the concept of first , next and last. She had to draw a series of pictures showing how to build a snowman from start to finish.
It is a fairly ordinary progression from one snowball, to two stacked snowballs and finally the completed snowman.
Nothing very earth shaking here.
But... when you turn over the project you get to see the whimsy that is Rebecca.
On her own she decided to draw what happens when a snowman melts.
I love how the snowman starts out so very tall and proper.
Another snowman she brought home was an in class project that was to be given as a gift. It's book loosely based on "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do You See?"
She had help with the binding and such, but the illustrations are all hers. If you are interesting in getting the whole story, just click on the cover and it will lead you to the photo-set of the whole book. There is even a little surprise at the very end of the book.
