1st semester recap and a new year's resolution

january 3rd.  2015.  what.  in.  the.  world!?  i know i haven't posted since school was starting back in september.  the truth is, i have been debating whether or not to give up the blog all together.  but as i was scrolling through my pictures from the first semester, (thank you instagram) i realized how much great stuff we make and how much i love to share it.  so...i'm back.  with a photo recap of the first semester (again...thank you instagram) and a new year's resolution to blog more. 


p.s.  i have an art club member who is really good at drawing anime, and who loves to draw me as an anime figure.  yeah...i'd say she pretty much nailed it!  lol- i look cool!


so goodbye 2014.
hello 2015.
here's to doing (and sharing) what you love. 
happy new year!

bulletin board love

wow you guys...can you believe it is already the end of september?  yeah me either.  we have some great art going on in my art room that i can't wait to share, but for now i wanted to show you my new bulletin boards.  this first one i painted right before school started.  it was based on a picture i saw on pinterest.  i tried to find the original designer, but had no luck.  so if it happens to be you, please let me know so i can give you credit for the original design.  i love this so much!



the next one is a collaboration between my students and me.  like most art teachers, i have a stash of painted paper because i could absolutely, positively never throw one away.  one of the many things i like to use said paper for is the die cut machine.  that's where the "we are ellis" letters came from.  the first week of school i don't see all my students, so i had the ones i did see design a handprint.  we brainstormed adjectives that describe ellis students.  i wrote them on a big banner in the art room.  each student had to pick a word (or two or three) to write on the hand as part of the design.  then we used markers and color sticks to make them super colorful.  i love this bulletin board too, you guys.  it is sooooo striking in the hallway!



 i hope you all had a colorful school start.  now bring on the fall!
