Who is that Masked Girl?!?

Sarah has been having lots of fun in summer school art class. Last week she brought home a very cool mask (and note there isn't a speck of pink on it!) and today she brought home three neat paintings. The animal skull is drawn and painted and then she used a q-tip dipped in bleach to "distress" the white part -- it's really neat and much cooler when you see it in person!

These two are water color drawings. One place on Sarah's "to visit list" is a beach -- she's never been to one. Just tonight she also was telling us she'd like to ride a horse someday. Maybe she can ride a horse on the beach!

And here are two more projects from last week. In her right hand is a folding card with a colored pencil drawing of a Chinese mountain/village landscape, a hand with gold fingernail polish and the Chinese characters for "mountains", "house" and "drawing". In her left hand is a pink and purple replica of "Pleakley," a character from "Lilo & Stitch" -- Pleakley is an alien who has three legs, two purple tongues, ONE large eye and a spaghetti-like body (photo of the real Pleakley is at the end of this post). While the real Pleakley is yellow, Sarah thinks he looks better PINK! In one of the cartoons we watched Pleakley wished for ears so he could wear sunglasses, so Sarah gave her Pleakley big ears! Sarah's Pleakley is made with computer wires.

I wonder what they'll do tomorrow in class!!?!!?
