"Mysterious Harlequins" Mrs. Hayes' third grade, Guest Artist, Carrie Fanning

Carrie Fanning was the guest artist for Mrs. Hayes’ third grade class. Carrie taught the children about Picasso and his phase in sketching and painting Harlequins. The children were delighted to create their own Harlequin character and wrote amazing stories to go along with their art.

When creating their art, the children first drew an outline of a Harlequin with a pencil and then went over it with black glue. Once the black glue was dried the children filled in the shapes with beautiful colored chalk that they blended with a tissue.

Carrie created Pysanky eggs, which are rich in tradition, and black outlines very much like the children’s art. Carrie’s hand waxed and dyed eggs are available on our online auction site: and search for “Lockeland Art Auction.”
