Art Journal Terms Crossword Puzzle

I draw everywhere, everyday.  Scribbling, sketching, repeating patterns in margins, on recipes, scraps of paper, grocery lists and more.  Sometimes I create places to draw.  Today it is a crossword.
Try it and post below
There are so many more terms that could be used and some that could have been left out.  I limit the time (5-10 minutes) and also wanted a lot of space around the edges.  This was also made with certain students in mind. Students will be instructed to quick sketch all the items in the puzzle around the edges.
Try this out or make your own.  There are plenty of free crossword generators where you can copy, paste & print super fast.  Let me know by leaving a comment below.

Whitehall Visit

I was happy to host this awesome group from Whitehall Wednesday morning bright and early.  They stayed through Digital Photo Class to get ideas for starting a program of their own.

Mr. Reynolds, Mrs. Reynolds, Mrs. Hoagland & Mrs. Lyng

Students were asked to get Macro Shots - as close as possible (minimum focusing distance).  We talked about light.  Using plates and cups to control and filter the light.  Flash, no flash, bokeh.  With the snow day today I will have to wait until next week to see student results.  Stay tuned, will post.
