A New Year In The Art Room

Guys, we are half way through the school year. Crazy! Here's what we have been up to in the art  classroom.

 6th grade face proportion collages. We are waiting for our supplies to come in, so we are using up all of our free supplies (magazines from teachers). I was really please at how the turned out!

 7th graders have been working for what seemed like forever on the op art boxes that were donated from another classroom. They turned out great and are sitting in our school's office getting tons of compliments. Above is a circle weaving from a student in seventh grade who had finished his work. It is turning out beautifull.

Eighth grade has been looking at work from Banksy and King Robbo. They then drew their own hand drawn designs on card stock, cut them out and spray painted them. Most kids really loved the spray paint.

Lately I can't get enough of following other art teachers for inspiration on Instagram. There are so many great teachers out there with amazing ideas! Our third nine weeks is starting up on Wednesday and I am ready for the change! I hope this new year has started out wonderfully for you!

The Great Christmas Exchange

Happiest New Year, friends! I hope your January has been refreshing and full of new possibilities! Josh and I had a wonderful Christmas in Abu Dhabi ( I know, pretty flippin sweet) and are back in the teaching world. I promise to share pictures soon.

This past December I participated in Samantha and Beth's Great Christmas Exchange, and I am so glad I did!

My Secret Santa was Laura, from a Nurse and a Nerd, who just recently found out she was having a baby boy! Her blog is full of great ideas for home renovation and I have been having so much fun following along. Laura got me this great print, and it is already framed and hung up next to my bed. Laura, I love it!!

 I got partnered to shop for Paige, over at Moments for the Journey. I love reading up on her Tiny House Journey. She wished for this great mug by Brittany Garner Design, and I knew I had to get it! I sent some tea along with this painting I made for her outdoorsy (is that a real word?) spirit.

I can't wait to see all the goodies everyone else got through this exchange, it has been so wonderful to meet such fun people through blogging!

8th Grade Monochromatic Paintings

While the grid drawings were amazing, the painting of these celebrities shocked me with their awesomeness. Seriously, I am so astounded that middle schoolers can do work like this. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for them!

Happy almost Tuesday!
