Happy New Year!!!

My one little word for this year is DO. I have a bad habit of wanting to wait until I have everything under control and knowing just what needs to be done, and I run out of time. So, here is one of my goals for this year- I am going to post my successful art lessons in order to share with those other Art teachers out there who just need some inspiration. I know that there are lots of blogs out there, but I am determined to make this one very useful to those who need it! I have many photographs that I have taken and I have decided to collage them instead of posting numerous ones. Maybe soon you will find some inspiration from this blog! If you do, please leave a comment...I am really into positive affirmations! (Just ask my kids!) So anyway, cheers to a new year guys, we are all in this together!

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...
