When I was in junior high and later as a high school freshman I loved to color. Double click on photos to enlarge.
Sixth grade pencil on notebook paper at st.john's lutheran school, seward, nebraska
Full page marker on 11" x 8" cardstock 1969
As a freshman I took index cards and made designs for the birthday of classmates at concordia secondary laboratory school, Seward, Nebraska. The background of the above card gives you an idea of the patterns I used.
So, one thing led to another and this week I have been decorating a dozen manila folders at my day job in Chillicothe. There was cutting of construction paper, glue, and permanent colored markers.
That gave me an idea, and I made a poster to encourage the class, below. Double click for closer details.
Then, I made posters to decorate the youth room in Carrollton, below.
It is what I am doing and it is lots of fun and making new great memories as well.
Last, I remember what Jean Howard of Prairie Village told me about Picasso. How he was doing many styles when creating. This is ME too. LOVING IT, being it.
Thank you teachers for this assignment.
