Community Paper!!

All students at Smilie made large sheets of community paper in art class today. This is paper made by our school community, for our school community. Ms. Cafferty and Mr. Menz's classes both did bubble printing. Ms. Thompson's class did a crayon resist with watercolor and Ms. Cole's class used bleeding tissue paper. All the papers have turned out beautifully! I am in the process of cutting these large paper down to sketch-book size so that the kids can go "shopping" in art next week for a lovely sketch book cover.
