Here's a photo of food.
Not exactly Thanksgiving feasting, but definitely comforting.  Looking forward to going to San Antonio for the Texas Art Education Association Convention.   Sure to pick up some new ideas and lots of photos.  Will share when I return!!

Today is the live streaming event for Every Artist Me.  This year's theme is "My favorite story."  I suspect the the site is being overwhelmed with responses.  It took me several tries to get my images posted last night and when I checked the site today, there weren't any images in the gallery.
So...........I have re-entered the images and now I have 2 galleries for Ridgecrest Roadrunners: one without any images and the other with the correct amount of 21 images.  I was going to add more but now I am not sure I am up for it.
Here are a few images from the gallery.

I feel so blessed to work with such talented people in our Enrichment Group.  We took the time out to posed with some of the tiaras (before they were broken to fit on the masks) used for the show at Lawndale.
Isn't there something we're forgetting?   Oh yes, it's time to enter grades!!

This is how we'll be feeling at the end of  Friday.....grades in, 1st nine-weeks over, and Field Day 2014 Success!!

It has been so busy here that I haven't taken the time to post any new photos.  So I will be posting several this week.
First up is a photo from the Lawndale Art Center Exhibit for Dia de los Muertos.  The show will be open for previews today thru Wednesday October 22.  Closed for silent auction on Thursday and will continue regular hours with Family Day on November 1 from 12pm -4pm.

It's hard to believe that 5 weeks have flown by.  In the art room students are beginning to finish up their first works.

In preparation for the Show at Lawndale Art Center, 5th grade students have crafted their plaster masks and done preliminary sketching and outlining with permanent marker.  Next they will begin adding paint.

Second grade has made some faux ceramic food  inspired by still lifes, Pop Artists, and ofrendas.
They'll be white after firing and ready for paint to make them look more like pepperoni pizzas.

Ms. Tuckett's Fourth Grade Class made Cupcake Containers in the same style:

Kinder is making everyone's favorite first clay project, Pumpkins!

Grades 2-5 are also working on  a special project that will soon be posted to the website,  
Most are finished with a few classes catching up to the end!  
Will share some images next time!!

Well, it's that time of year.  Another class of 5th graders is getting ready to spread their wings.  But first a little unstructured fun time! Best of luck and love to all!

Here are some masks that my 3rd graders are working on.  They are made of foil-covered poster board. They are colored with permanent markers...acrylic jewels, ribbons, pipe cleaners, and feathers add some pizzazz.  Enjoy!

It's been quite a week with the Spring Show installed at the Althareta Yeargin Museum at WAIS.  It will be up for the week with late night on Wednesday April 30 from 5 - 7:30. Will post pictures from the show in 2 weeks.
Here are some pics of bowls inspired by American glass-blowing legend Dale Chihuly.  These are a special project that Ms. Perdomo's second graders were selected to make.
This is how they looked when dry (green ware).
They were fired and then students painted them with glazes and they were fired again.
Here's two of them all shiny and finished.
Pretty fabulous if I say so myself!!

Getting ready for Mother's Day.  We made flowers with pinch pots.  We are glazing them to look like sunflowers.  This is a project for 1st and 2nd grade.  Next we'll be glazing them.
