Crazy for Cats (Klee cats, that is)

The kids have had a ball making a chalky mess this week!
We had chalk everywhere! The kids thought this was a great project...One of my first graders said, "This was the best day ever! We got to make art and get really messy at the same time! I love it!" They crack me up. :)

  2. I have read back through your entire blog and want to say thank you. I'm a former art teacher and now a humane educator and several of your projects would work great for my program, and others gave me insight into materials I wouldn't have considered. Thank 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...
