SAAM Cupcake Jumping!

Zilly Rosen of Zillycakes in Buffalo, NY sent me this Art Jump. She is jumping for the Public Programs Staff at the Smithsonian American Art Museum who enabled her to create a dual portrait of Obama and Lincoln out of 5,921 cupcakes entitled "A New Birth of Freedom" as part of their 4th annual Presidential Family Fun Day. So awesome!

Thanks :)

Thanks everyone for sending in so many great Art Jumping photos! I have received quite a few in the past month or two, and I appreciate everyone's patience in waiting for their posts.

Also, JAM now has a Facebook group! What these group pages are for, I have no idea, but you should still join!

Art Room Jumping!

These pictures are by far the best JAM has seen in a while! Keziah, an art teacher in Washington DC, sent me these fantastic photos. Her students love art class and had to express their joy!

Thank you Keziah and thank you enthusiastic young artists for warming my heart on this cold DC morning.
