School Days weekly art challenge August 3

 
Summer is winding down and all the ads are telling us it's time 
to spend spend spend on back-to-school items.
 
Before we know it we'll be seeing the big yellow school buses!

 
Do you have school-time memories that inspire you to create some art?

I hope your school days were happy ones, although I know 
we all have both good and bad memories of those 12+ years.


This looks like a well-loved teacher, 
the kind that makes up for the ogres that peppered our school years.

Norman Rockwell could always create poignant images of days gone by.


Sometimes a girl's just gotta do what she's gotta do.

 
Did your mother make your new clothes,
or did you go on a shopping trip for school clothes?
 
 
Vintage sewing patterns are great to use for collages.
 
This figure might have been me contemplating back-to-school.

 
Some children go to boarding school.
In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines,

lived twelve little girls in two straight lines. 
 
They left the house at half past nine . . . 
 
the smallest one was Madeline.



The world over, children in a line usually means they are in school.
 
 
Single file, please!
 

A perplexing problem . . . or daydreaming?
 

A favorite place.
 

Look at these eager students!
 

That gigantic box of 64 crayons never looked like this for long.
 
 
I hope these images entertained you for a time and,
more importantly, inspired you to create something 
for this week's challenge which is
School Days

Leave your link with Mr. Linky below by Sunday August 10, 
12 noon eastern time. I'm looking forward to
seeing a glimpse of your school days!

Such a great theme :) In every school I went libraries were my favorite places.

I missed this one because I was very busy rescuing cats. I love the images you chose for this! School was always a special place to me.

LOVED all these paintings, especially the girl with the black eye :)) All these brought back tons of school memories!
