Recently I have been thinking about all of the ways that RES artists create outside of art class.
When Halloween was around the corner, I asked my students to tell me about anything that they were making for the holiday. Sometimes I worry this holiday built on fun and creativity is getting, well, a little too easy. It's much simpler to buy a costume than to pull out the sewing machine and glue gun. And the mass-marketing of costumes that are both truly cool and affordable has made it easier to skip going DIY.
So, are parents and kids at RES still making their own? As it turns out, yes!

|Cowboy, with awesomely perfect background|
|This Snowy Owl will stay warm!|

|Making the headband|
|Seamstresses at work!|
|A box is always a good starting point.|
|Love to see this artist in action|
Print, cut out, and paste the classic Nerds characters...
|The face paint! The wig! Gah!|
My students astound me. Hilarious! That is one impressively revamped box.
