"Kind Kimonos" Mrs. Henley's first grade, David Harper, Guest Artist

Nashville Dave was the guest artist for Mrs. Henley’s First Grade Class. David is inspired by collage and working with many images and types of paper. We all enjoyed thinking of the peaceful feelings we had when looking at examples of beautiful kimonos. We also thought about how loving you would feel wearing such a beautiful garment.

First the children drew a kimono with colorful oil pastels. A fixitive was later added to keep the pastels from smearing. Each child cut out their kimono and glued it to a piece of gorgeous and richly textured background paper.

David has donated an original kimono collage, available at our online auction: www.ebay.com search for “Lockeland Art Auction”
