The last time we were together at Cooke, we were making rainbows! Spring weather is a great time to look for rainbows. We have had days with rain and sun mixed all together. Keep your eyes on the weather, even when we have to stay inside, you might find a rainbow.

Try some more doodles:

!Origami!

Hey Guys,

During the school year I always get requests from Cooke art students to do origami. It’s a tricky art form to teach in a large group. BUT working at home and having the help of a computer is a great place to do origami.

Let’s learn

Como Hacer una Carita de Perro de Papel

How to make a paper dog face

For any origami you will need a square piece of paper.  You can make a square paper from any newspaper, mail, magazine, or copy paper or whatever you have at home. Before we start the dog, follow these steps to make your square (you can’t make origami w/o a square!)

  1. First, turn the top corner to the opposite side

2. Hold top corner down and complete the fold to form a triangle.

3. Cut off the paper below the triangle

4. Unfold, ta da!

NOW that we have a square paper, lets follow this video to create una Carita de Perro de Papel, a dog face!

 

 

 

Did you make one? Did you draw a face on it? Did you make a different origami creation?

 

 

Art Adventures: from my family to yours

Hi Cooke Artists,

Today I would like to share with you some of the art adventures my family has explored recently.

We have made some Treasures from Trash and other paintings where we are exploring the materials. My sons, Alex and Max, are almost 4 years old and I encourage all kids (even my 5th graders) to use found materials and EXPLORE. Where you end up is not important but what you experience is.

Check back tomorrow for our weekly art adventure!

Found Objects Color Wheel!

Screen Shot 2020-03-31 at 11.26.17 AM

Hello Artists!

This week I encourage and challenge you to make a Found Art Color Wheel. First, you will find many objects (that are mostly one color) and then you will arrange and organize the objects to create a color wheel. Please send me a photo of yours through the remind app or email so we can all see each other’s creations! Please refer to the formal color wheel as needed.

Happy creating,

One last art idea: you can always draw what you feel, how you feel, what you see, what you dream…..you can use some of these doodles to help whatever you draw!

Happy Sunday,

Ms. Mueller

A Note for Parents & Caregivers

Hi HD Cooke Artists and Families,

This time is not EASY. Some parts are easier (like not having to rush to school each morning) but some parts are much harder (like working, homeschooling, cleaning, and never leaving your house).

Here’s some supportive ideas for how to manage during this unusual time:0.jpg 0-40-10-20-3

If you are like me, sometimes this advice is simple to read but hard to enact in the moment! The biggest thing I am doing during this time as a parent is being FLEXIBLE.

Flexible with the schedule, flexible with (some) rules, and flexible with myself.

Sending all the Parents & Caretakers love at this time,

Ms. Mueller (mom of 3 year old twin boys)
