Auction Art and Otherwise

02 Mar 2013

I finished my school Group Art Project last weekend, so I had a calm week. A giant thank you to Cheap Peet’s Asst. Manager Benjamin, for framing our artwork so quickly! Now I’m looking forward to tonight’s spending spree (ahem, ‘school auction’). It’s for a good cause: our childs’s public school education. Wanna buy a raffle ticket? Just kidding.

This is the collage I made, that will be up for auction (click to see it larger). Below are snapshots of the process, and a description:

I realize I have not been blogging lately.
Is this the time I always wondered about, when I would lose interest?

I don’t think I’ve lost interest entirely.

Instagram is a big contributing factor. I bet if there was no Instagram, I’d be posting more pics here.

After my big Clarendon art project is wrapped up and shipped off, I hope to be free of commitments to others, and able to focus on more selfish endeavors..

Here’s the over due hot mess that I’m sitting next to.
Pray for me that I can throw it together in the final minutes!


Field Trip to the Contemporary Jewish Museum

06 Dec 2012

I loved the space, an SF landmark at Jesse Plaza on Mission St. The building was originally built in the 1800s, but it fell in the 1906 earthquake. In 1907 it was re-built as a PG&E Power Substation (by architect Willis Polk). Unveiled in 2005, the CJM was built as a combination of the old and the new, by architect Daniel Libeskind. It is directly opposite the Yerba Buena center for the Arts, (adjacent to the Metreon at Mission and 4th.)

The kids are studying the work of Ezra Jack Keats, in honor of his award winning book, The Snowy Day, turning 50. Here’s the recap about the artist, taken from the JCM’s website:

The private tour was so deluxe! It’s a really top notch program/outreach, our class is lucky to have been chosen. In addition to studying the books and the art that went into them, the kids will be making their own books in the style of Ezra Jack Keats. Using decoupage and photo collage, they’ll learn about themes like storytelling, writing from dreams, and depicting neighborhood realism.

The rain disappeared, and were able to eat lunch outside. Yay! It was wet, but nice.

I had so much fun – what a great group of kids!
