Art Journaling



On this page I used paint, sponge, paper and my hand
For this page I used paper, magazines and stickers!
Art journaling is a combination of art and writing. My mom (over at Teachable Moments) Teaches a art journaling class every other week with a group of my friends. I enjoy art journaling because I love art and writing. Here are a few pictures of my art journal. 

For this page I wrote a halloween poem.  I used paper,  stickers
and paint.


 Art journaling is so much fun because....

  • I get to see my friends.
  • I get to do art.
  • I get to write.
  • The pages let me use my imagination.
  • I can be creative.


Why art journaling is so much better than art class in a school:



  • Nobody tells you what to do.
  • You can use as much material as you want.
  •   You can do what you want to do the way you want to do it.
  •  There are hardly any rules
  •  you can be creative.
  •  You can have your art describe you.


Why art class in schools are not as good as art journaling at home: 

  • Everybody has to do the same exact thing.  
  • You can't be as creative as you may want to be.
  • Your trapped in a class room.
  • You might not be with your friends.




If you liked this post why not try art journaling at home! It is really easy and really fun.  Have fun!

Sandy

Hurricane Sandy hit us Monday and it got really bad Monday afternoon.  Monday evening we lost power.   No power was really hard, but also really fun!

I enjoy playing board games by candle light instead of watching t.v, and using lanterns instead of lights, and no tv or iPads is actually kind of nice! The really bad things about no power are no hot meals,  no hot showers, and no wifi. I would have liked wifi... I am currently addicted to Instagram so it was hard losing wifi...  Thankfully on Wednesday, my kind Aunt and Uncle brought their generator (they already got their power back) to my house and hooked it up to our t.v, fish tank, kitchen lights, refrigerator, and... Wifi! I was able to Instagram again! 

After the storm me, my sister, and my dad went on a destruction walk, so we could see what damage Sandy had done. At the park the next block over from my house a huge pine tree fell. We saw down power lines, trees on houses, shattered car windshields, and many down branches. It was amazing. And scary. I am so glad our house didn't get damage, because we saw so many houses that did. 



Next we went to the beach. The sea wall was in pieces. The railing and steps leading down to the sand were broken. The beach was yards longer than it was three days before. 

We lost power for four days. We got power back Friday at about 9:00 at night.

I hope all the people who lost their homes from Hurricane Sandy are okay. Did you get any damage? Comment and tell me!

Halloween

On Tuesday I found out that Halloween had been moved to the following week because of the remains of Hurricane Sandy!  I was so sad. Halloween is my second favorite holiday, and I look forward to it all year long. 

On Halloween afternoon our friends called us to tell us that they were going to a 'Trunk-or-Treat' that night. We decided to go too, to replace halloween. I imagined that there would be 15-20 cars there. There were a lot more! We got tons of candy, and we got to hang out with our friends! Halloween wasn't ruined!

After trunk- or- treating we went to our friends house to trade candy. Right now I have 64 pieces of candy, but I ate a lot on Halloween, so I had more than 64. We a probably are not going trick-or-treating on the rescheduled  Halloween, but we don't know for sure yet. I hope you had (or if it was rescheduled have) a great Halloween!
