One of the teachers at my school came to me with a request for a visual aid of a train she needed for a presentation. I didn't get much more of a description than that. I had a couple of free periods that day so I got an old stock image illustration of a train for reference and hacked this out quick. It's black tempera paint on about 3'x5' cardboard. It took me about 30 minutes and I have to say it felt good. Almost like relieving yourself.

These are exemplars I made for a lesson I will do with one of my classes in the future. The idea for this came from one of the great craft blogs that I follow. Check it out.Max is a cardboard tube from a toilet paper roll while the monster is a cardboard tube from a roll of wrapping paper. Both are painted with acrylics. Think about that next time you use toilet paper!
