1st & 2nd Week!!!

Times hasn't stopped yet! We are already into our second week and I'm amazed at how well my young artists are doing and how I've made my lessons some what harder...but enjoyable for the students!

 Our first art project was designing our names including at least one or two Elements of Art!

Already #1 

My Word Palette is coming along.  I'm placing grade level coded post-it notes next to each word they are leaning.

I'm also trying something new this year.  I'm having students fill in the boxes, eventually they would write or fill in the blank for each line, but I'm thinking it's too much for 1-2 maybe just 3-4.

I also think, I OVER planned for this week.  I have to remember ART CLASS should be fun.  I think the standards got to me a little bit.

How do you introduce your art lessons?

Artist Inspiration
Then Art Production

Do you set up your tables? I'm in the process again training students to pick up their folders and then place them back in the CORRECT spot :0)

Art Room Windows!

I have wanted curtians for a whole year, I even bought the fabric! But I knew curtians would block too much sunlight so next best, stain glass look. 

What you need: 
Tissue paper
Scissors or paper cutte
Electrical tape -1 small roll side note husband said this tape will eventually leave a residue :-( because of the baking by the sun
Glue stick 

Step 1: cut your tissue paper and put a glue line on the window and stick your tissue paper on. This will hold and is easily removable and the window cleans easy with soap and water. 

Step 2: outline with electrical tape. So far no residue is building but it time!!! Meaning , you know when you pull masking tape off and the your like...where's my goo gone!!!  Yeah, I'll probably have to do that
