Was it a Good Trade?

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?

Seniors & Teachers Paint

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!

Fractal Like Photoshop Tutorial

Created a new Photoshop Tutorial today.  Had to merge a few different ideas found online with ideas of my own. Definitely needs work but happy to have a new lesson.

Five Minute Drawings

Student:  What are we doing next time in art?
Me:  You tell me
Student:  Making dogs in high heels
Me:  Okay
Wait til he sees this sketch of his dog in high heels

Book Fair Bulletin Board

Pressed for time, Yes
Need to prioritize, Yes
But I love the Book Fair and everything about it
Sure, there are some rushed flaws and it could be more creative
Pretty proud that it was done in 20 minutes
