Sneak Peek @ Art Room Mural and Collaborative Circle Paintings

I am surprised that I am up posting right now as today was an exhausting day. The kind of day I would not trade for anything but I am tired. 
The art room was double booked all day today and will be again tomorrow to make sure that all of my 1-5 grade artists are able to meet Will "Kasso" Condry, Muralist, to view him painting a mural in the art room "live" and to participate in a collaborative circle painting project that I am running. Busy, busy, busy. 
All that were in the art room today know one thing with certainty---> Will Condry is quite incredible.
Before I fall asleep, here are a few photos from the day. 

Update: June 28, 2013. This blog post has been VERY popular due to Pinterest and has generated thousands of page views for this blog since Dec. 2011. If you create a project inspired by this post, please share your results and link back! Have fun!
I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE THESE CIRCLE PAINTINGS

He painted in these expressive circles the "skeleton" for this section of the mural in minutes.

  4. Inspiring post. Thank you. Would you mind if I used one of the circle painting pics on a flyer for a village children's event called 'The Big Mess' in the UK?
