Big Thanks to the original inventor and also to the teachers that shared iterations. I dug them out the other day for a 4th grade class and they were so excited. They were quiet, working together, being nice to each other - at the end of the year! They made some fantastic drawings
BUT the best part was that they made their own categories. So funny and interesting that other students wanted to play the NEW games.
It inspired me to make more. If interested, click on the links below
Working Today, since early this morning, on a final exam that can include elements of every project completed this year. Minimum 8 elements. Open Book in a way, as the hand-made test booklet has little bits of each project in it. It is a Self-Portrait Collage, Example Below.
So Proud of my 4th year students that have submitted hand drawn elements to be included in their collages.
New Elective = Tons of work = Good, interesting work!
BOGO Scholastic Book Fair at school. Even the pencil top erasers were BOGO. 2nd Grade student said he wanted me to have this Watermelon scented eraser. I told him we could make a trade. I would draw a favorite character. Was it a good trade?
Opened up new opportunities after school for Seniors & Teachers. Seniors can bring a teacher along for an art activity or they can just show up and make art side by side. So far we have made ceramic ring dishes and had a painting session.
Lots of giggles and memories
The teacher (me) poured white glaze into the bottom of the dish (upper left). Instead of an inner glow (the goal) there is just a random white blob!
Look at the brush strokes, the colors and the movement in these beautiful paintings made by "Non-Painters" This made my day!
