What a Monday!

It has been a really great day! Today we started our new project in grades 3, 4, and 5. Since we live in Walking Horse country, I adapted the Zentangle to be a HorseTangle. The kids are loving it! They were soooo well behaved today-almost hypnotized! This is definately a lesson to repeat year after year.
The grade 2's did another version-a circular zentangle. We discussed lines and shapes based on the 5 Basic Elements of shape from Mona Brooke's Drawing with Children. Here are some examples of the work from today:
Just to clairfy, the second horse is the demo I did... ;)
Didn't they do an awesome job! I can't wait for them to finish...

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...
