Hallowe'en Countdown Day -27/School Days

One lesser known fact about Mr. Macabre is that he used to be an art teacher at a Catholic school for a short time. Trouble is, God never showed up but Beelzebub always arrived 10 minutes early each time. Now Mr. Macabre is teaching art to a class of home schooled younguns and this months lesson is making a corpse head.


Yes, I am teaching America's youth how to corpse a skull.

We're actually making nightstand skulls with electric candles coming out of the cranium. I'm letting the kids have free reign with this project, they can do whatever they want.


Showing the kids how to play 'Lobotomy'


And we played 'Orthodontist' too!

This is some more of our little 'Lobotomy' game

And showing the children how to test and see if the glue gun is ready or not.





I-I-I'm not crying, I just have something in my eyes...

Regular School was never this much fun...

Holy Safety Films Batman! For a second there I felt like I was in eight grade wood shop moments before the teacher intentionally caught his sleeve on fire to show us how not to panic and and safely put out the fire. That vise like grip you had on the skull was the only thing keeping you from the home version of a nutectomy.

Are those all your boys? Handsome fellas. Make sure to post pictures of their completed lamps, I wanna see.

The Charlie Brown t-shirt is awesome!
And, I admire you for teaching America's Youth about corpsing. It's a valuable skill!

Looks like a fun class! It appears that you were about to slice off a finger in one photo. I trust it was just the camera angle <:O

The Frog Queen said...

Okay, that is way too awesome. Going to catholic school myself...you would have been my favorite teacher. Mostly because you are not a nun (and they still scare me) but this is perfect!!

BTW - teaching kids the correct way to eat hot glue is very important! :D

Cheers!

So you're teaching the next generation of haunters how to do it right! Tgat's very cool! Wish I had that kind of class when I was a small boy. :-)

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I WAS A YOUNGIN' TAKING ART CLASSES?

You are the coolest. Ever. Ever. Ever!

*grin* Tomorrow we start learning how to make decayed flesh for their skulls.

I heard from their mom that one of them put a little electric tea light and slept with his on all night long.
