Well it's the week before the holiday break and we've been busy finishing up our projects and wrapping them for the journey home.  I'm going to enjoy the break and will be working on plans for the New Year.So stay tuned!

Holiday Houses.  I love to do this lesson because it ties in a few of my favorite things: geometry, geometric shapes, architecture, texture,clay, paint, and of course glitter paint. The geometric terminology has stuck with me, as I passed out "lemon squares" at a recent party and found myself refering to them as "lemon rectangular prisms".   Enjoy!!!

Holiday Workshop

Hey there!!  It's been a very busy last month!!  Right before Thanksgiving I went to San Antonio for the Texas Art Education Association Convention.  I had a great time and learned lots of new things to start teaching in January, so stay tuned!
 We finished up class projects to make way for holiday decorations....third grade is finishing up on some Picasso/Cubism-inspired artworks that they started back before the Holiday Play rehearsals began. Here are some of them from today's class.  Above are some first grade students painting on their ceramic ornaments!  So lovely and so much fun!
