Back to School

Welcome Back!  This year I've decided to focus even more on Elements and Principles of design. So my room is dedicated to the Elements. I love cartoon characters and so do  my students so as an attention getter I used my characters to display the elements. I used student artwork as examples of each element. Color- Mondrian project using primary colors. Space-Notan design representing positive and negative space.
There are a few things that I decided to continue from previous years. My Student Artist of the Month has always been a huge hit. I have students already asking me about becoming a student artist of the month. I will continue to choose one boy and one girl, middle school student and one elementary student. They must show 100% effort, Moral Focus, display a since of responsibility, determination and great attitude. They do not have to be a great artist but their character must exhibit excellence.

Lastly, this is my bulletin board for the beginning of the year. You can't go wrong with a Minion. more thing before I get down to business

Well, I think things are slowing down for me. Now I can get back to blogging. The last thing that I needed to complete before really getting down to business, was having a house warming party. Many friends and family members were dying to check out the house so, the invitations were sent, gifts were brought, food was great and the cake was cut. We had a ball. Now that that's over, get ready for more lessons to come.
