April's Top 5:

1. All of the Peeps-themed famous paintings on the Arts and Activities Magazine Instagram feed.  Here are just a few:

2. I love seeing art made by other art teachers, and these Pysanky eggs, made by Kim Nuckols, just blew me away. This was her first time making them too!

3. Happy birthday, Vincent!  Check out these crocheted Van Gogh dolls at the Van Gogh Museum! Courtesy @feltasticfashion.

4. Jen Stark is a contemporary artist whose work is inspired by "infinity, topographical maps, fractals, designs in nature, repetition, plant growth, color and mystery."  I just love how Ally Adkisson's 6th grade class learned about her work and then made their own versions using paper.

5. These mix-and-match dolls look so incredibly fun!  I could see a tie-in with Marisol Escobar's work as well. Courtesy @smallhandsbigart:
