Summertime!!! Whoo Hoo!

I am finally getting my breath back after the crazy end of this year. I am in the planning stages for next, and I am so excited! I am going to the Tennessee Arts Academy in July, along with Creativity 2012. I am hoping to learn all kinds of cool stuff to come back and share with the other teachers. Thanks to the internet, I have more ideas than ever to use, I just have to get my bearings on what exactly to do to cover all the GLEs and SPIs. With all the goodies I grabbed at the ZeroLandfill Nashville, I am sure lots of them will be from recycled materials! Anyway, stay tuned for lots of ideas after I return from these conferences. I will be glad to share them with you!

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...
