Now onto something fun for me! One of my favorite art projects involves Abraham Lincoln and charcoal. I love using a variety of art mediums with my students so every year we do a directed drawing of Abraham Lincoln using art charcoal. I bought a box of 100 pieces of art charcoal years ago. I think that box is going to last F.O.R.E.V.E.R! But just because I did this in charcoal doesn't mean you have to. Crayon or pencil would work just as well. Here are two finished masterpieces from last week. I am always stunned by how wonderful these portraits all turn out.

My laundry is calling me, so away I go.
Love to all,
