pop heARTs

happy valentine's day, friends!  my 5th graders just finished a heart painting project that i wanted to share with you.  i love how these paintings came out so much!  we started by looking at the heart series by american painter, jim dine.  then we went to town learning how to make different marks and layer with paint.  luckily, we finished them just in time for me to put up a display for a valentine event at our school, which looks fabulous, if i do say so myself!









i call this project "pop heARTs"  btw.  haha

hope you all had a great valentine's day!

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!
