|Here are a few pages from my planner this year. Once again, I had fun making a usually "boring must have" into an awesome place to collage, color, draw and journal!|
|You can see more artfully collaged |
planner pages here, here and here.
|In my continuous effort to get Middle School students to bring a pencil to art class, I created yet another bulletin board outside my classroom door to try to motivate!|
I had fun creating these two construction paper
Minions representing a typical discussion
happening almost daily in the art room.
|As a treat at the end of the fall semester, |
all of my art classes got to watch Despicable Me 2.
|To make this activity educational, students were to draw their own Minion by following drawing steps or tracing parts.|
Then they were to think of a theme and add clothes,
accessories, and a background if they had time.
| They could finish their drawing with |
shading, colored pencil and/or marker.
|I had so many good ones left over, |
I was able to make a door decoration!
for Mrs. O'Leary's this year. Just had enough time to
make a few using new holiday papers and Artful Illusion stamps...
|Santa Poe and his Christmas raven came to visit this year...|
|Here's a dimensional tree popped off a canvas made |
with new fun Christmas papers and embellishments.
|Kitty can be pulled up or left lower for a Christmas surprise!|
|During the fall semester, as students finish work early, |
I have several fall leaf projects for them to choose from.
These are just a few.
|Half inch grid paper, stencil, and textures.|
|Leaf rubber stamps in black ink on kraft paper, drawn over with chalk pastels.|
|Stenciled leaves outlined in sharpie with line in the negative space.|
|Stenciled leaves with marker textures and echo lines.|
|Crayon drawn leaves and watercolor with salt textures.|
|One inch grid, stencil, textures, and colored pencil shading.|
|Rubber stamped leaves using markers in a radial symmetrical design.|
|Stenciled leaves, glue/glitter outline, watercolor, marker echo lines.|
See more of these and other autumn art here.
|Students also enjoy creating tree art this time of year.|
You can see more tree art here and here and here.
