I thought I could do it, I really did. But, obviously, I'm no better at keeping up with my blog than I am with keeping up with Artsonia this year. Hence, I'm posting pictures all at once of several projects I've done recently and making a New Year's resolution...(hey, I'm a teacher so my new year comes every August, not January) that starting next year, I WILL, I WILL keep my blog up to date and even try to jazz it up a bit :)

Third graders were introduced to artist James Rizzi and his colorful multimedia work. They were then given a sheet with step by step directions on how to create their own bird. It was fun to see how students followed the directions to come up with some pretty creative birds!

Mrs. C made some really cool textured paper with K students. They talked about artist, Eric Carle, and read "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". After examining his artwork and collage technique, students followed step by step instruction to create their very colorful butterflies.
