The main reason we got to go to China this Spring was to teach art to students at the Western Academy of Beijing as Artists in Residence. For the fifth graders, I was to come up with a lesson on “change,” so I had them paint two paintings, then change them completely by cutting up and rearranging them into a bird.

Here are just a few:

Aren’t they great?

Steve and I shot a little video tutorial in China on how to make these, so look for it in the next week or so.

Have a great day!
