December's Art Challenge: Christmas
The hosts of the Virtual Refrigerator put our heads together and decided to give a themed challenge to each other and to our readers each month. For December, the theme is Christmas, and we're sure that we and all our participants will have plenty of ideas for related art projects to share! We'll be featuring themed submissions to the Fridge as we go along. Please continue to share any art posts on our Virtual Fridge as well - we love seeing all of them! - and we hope the theme provides a little additional challenge and inspiration!

Here's one of my favorites among Kennady's past projects that definitely has a Christmas theme: Retablo Art

This wonderful project, and lots of others, came from one of my favorite art/geography resources - Geography Through Art by Sharon Jeffers.
You can also find a printable retablo and many other Christmas-y paper toys at The Toymaker.

Here are the projects Kennady worked on this week. She was cleaning her room and found a couple of rug hooking kits that someone had started and never finished, so she took those on. This fish makes me think of tropical waters, and I could use some warm thoughts right about now!

She also did some work from an ARTistic Pursuits book that she hadn't finished. I love this particular piece - a tropical sunset. It's not a Christmas theme, but it also makes me feel just a bit warmer now that it's so chilly outside!

 This still life is also from the ARTistic Pursuits book.

You can grab the button above and add it to your post. Add your link here to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts. Please visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!
