Coast Starlight Slide Show

How about a ride along the California coast on Amtrak’s Starlight?

Here are some pictures I took out of the window. I love riding the train!

(By the way, this is a quick and easy slide show. It uses pictures you have already uploaded to other sites. These are on Flicker.)

Paint Some Sunflowers

Everybody loves sunflowers. They are bold, simple, and colorful. Inspire students by showing them a reproduction of a sunflower painting by Vincent Van Gogh (he did several), and then set up a couple of vases with real, or artificial blooms for your students to draw. They can work in tissue collage, tempera, or crayon. It is a winning project for artists of all ages.
