If you give art club students pencils,
they'll doodle awhile, then they'll want to use color.
So we'll get out the colored pencils...
but then they'll want to do wax resist
so we'll play with crayons and oil pastels...
when finished they'll want paint,
so out will come the watercolors and acrylics
and fingers to apply the paint...
but one student will think we need tissue
and another stencils and stamps...
and another student will want buttons
and glitter and laminate and
finally they'll ask their teacher to stitch the whole thing
into a book...
and then they'll want pencils for signing their names
and there will finally be smiles.
I am finally smiling as I pack this beautiful book
made by my art clubbers.
It's going to Somerset Studio in response to their invitation
for art related to "the Classics.
This is a take off of
"If you give a Moose a Muffin"
by Laura Numeroff.
Aren't they the best artists?
