Lola’s Matchbox Bird House

Lola's Birdhouse Sometimes the art my students make just makes my jaw drop. This comes from yesterday’s Match Box Art class, where I proposed students make a bird house. My sample had a very basic house on the cover, and a drawn nest inside and a tiny felt bird. Notice how Lola here turned everything up a notch…or two. Her house has a “Home Sweet Home” sign out front, an interior with a cozy brick wall and flowers, and not just any bird, an adorable hummingbird with extra long beak. Just amazing. And Lola is in the fourth grade.
