It's a brand new year!

Well, the new year is here! I have been so excited to get my lesson plans ready for this year...so many ideas, so many cool things to do!
I have been working on my room and getting my organization mojo on.
If you aren't on Pintrest, you should be. There are so many neat ideas on there, and it is such a great way to keep up with things you want to do. I get a bit lost in my favorites folder, so the pictures are a wonderful way for me to find what I am looking for.
I believe that the first lesson we are going to do this year is a monochromatic self portrait. I want to put them all together to make a huge mural. I am at home now, so when I get to school, I will take some pictures of the way I have things arranged. I love to check out everyone else's ideas, so I want to share mine!
See you soon, and I hope your school year is fabulous!

Colorful Owl Pastel Drawings

Last year, I attended the Create 2012 conference in Murfreesboro, TN. Several of the teachers from my town attended, and it was great. My favorite class was one on drawing animals, and the class description said something about being "based on the style of Laurel Burch". Well, since I am a big fan of hers, mostly because of all the things she had to overcome in life, I attended. The lady was so sweet, but basically she showed us her work, and let us have at it. That was fine with me! I was ready to just make something. Having an obsession with owls, which dates back to the 70's when they were first in style, I naturally chose to draw one. This is what I came up with- I took it to school, and the kids went wild. I don't know if it was the color, or the glitter, or what, but they BEGGED to make one. They did a great job. I believe these are from the third graders- Pretty cute, huh?

Romero Britto Inspired Walking Horses

In honor of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration,  the students have started creating their Romero Britto inspired horses. I think they are awesome! When they finish the Horse, they will work on the background. These are works in progress...
