First I should apologize for taking more than a month to post...so much for my ''New Years Resolution''! I have lost 11 pounds though! My other New Years Resolution to lose weight and work out!
There have been many things going on over here. Many projects, preparation for my Art Show, finding out they are not replacing the other elementary art teacher who is retiring...yah know..the goods and the bads! So I have many posts to come. My spring break starts next week and I plan to post away and get caught up!
One 'good' that is happening is that we are lucky to be getting a new school built! It is a very exciting process. Next year around October/November we should be moving into the new building. I am so excited to have a new art room! No more creepy clowns on the floors and random fire place....yes I said fire place...I will be sure to post before and after shots!
So I decided that my 5th graders this year would draw our old building and I would have our superintendent choose one to be framed and hung at the new building. Loved the idea, I have been planning this since I found out we would be moving in 2012. What I did not plan for was how difficult teaching 2 point perspective would be! I will have to admit...drawing detailed precise lines is not my thing! I am a potter! Even though this has been a major challenge for me and my students I think my 5th graders are working so hard! I am so proud of their dedication! I have a few examples to share. We plan to water color paint these and use colored pencils for details.
