As an art teacher, especially with young kiddos at home, it can be difficult to carve out time to do some fun stuff just for yourself. Here are a few pieces that I was able to make this year. I love to play around with all sorts of mediums but I always seem to fall back on to illustrations! 😜
It was my turn this year to prepare invitations for the school board for our departments annual art show. I loved this magnet idea and had students help make elephants with patterns. Get it, elephants have good memories... Hehe. This way the magnet could keep our art departments card on their fridge with all the important info and our website.
5th grade students learned about American Painter Georgia O'Keeffe. To give some freedom to the students, they were given the choice to paint an up close poinsettia in her style or one of her more desert like scenes. This was a highly successful project and students showed great pride in their work. I was very proud of them as well!
