teacher portraits, 2009



Masterpiece on top by Modigliani; masterpieces below by some of the kids in my son's second grade class. We just did portraits of his teacher, like we did last year, so now I need to make them into a book for her end of the year present. It's so neat to compare last year's drawings with this year's...

She appears quite fierce and uses a lot of rouge apparently. But I'm sure she's lovely!

I love this idea. Wondering if you make it a surprise for her? Did you send it home for the kids to do? May have to try this for my son's class. Our teacher is leaving this year and it would be so nice to do. Thanks for the idea.

Hi, I've just been looking at the postings related to doll's clothes. I have just made a load of them for my daughter's birthday. I was now wondering if I should make hangers for them or if that was toooooo much. I saw that you did have some so that's decided me. I will be fashioning some tomorrow. Isn't it great to have children to make all these things for?
btw I love Modigliani.
My daughter just painted a portrait of me yesterday. It's so cute.
