Work In Progress

Two months ago in my personal blog I blogged about a painting I had begun and since that time I've continued working on it on odds days off or when time allows. Hopefully the summer will afford me greater opportunities to work on my art. To date I have three paintings uncompleted. I would like to see at least two finished before the end of August.

More student work!

I'm proud of the work my students Grades 6 & 7 have done in the last few weeks. I can't help but show it off!

Some students are really into the mechanics of the final major project of the semester.

April was Architecture Month!

April became the unofficial month for architecture in my classes Grades 1-4. I hadn't planned this exactly, rather each class ended or began at a specific time when architecture would be the theme of the next project. While students and I discussed the influence of classical architecture of Greek and Roman designs on modern day works of art, we couldn't help but use our imaginations and take our ideas of the future to paper. My 4th graders are still working on 3D designs based on their blue prints.
