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!
