Woo, hoo! We are back to school! After a nice, long summer break we are back in session. It was great having the extra 2 weeks off this summer. I’m very excited to be back with the kids though and ready to get to work of some fantastic art projects. This year we are starting off by studying Vincent van Gogh at Inman and Fantasy Space Art at Washington.
In the spirit of van Gogh, I did some sewing this summer and made a “Starry Night” blouse. I wore it yesterday and the look on the kids faces when they saw it was priceless! They were so excited.
I follow an art teacher website by Cassie Stephens and they are having a “What the Art Teacher Wore Back to School Contest” this week. Please take a minute to go on and vote for me at the following link:http://cassiestephens.blogspot.com/2015/09/what-art-teachers-woreback-to-art.html The contest ends this coming week. Thanks!!
In the past our Spring Art Show at Inman Primary has included approximately 3,000 pieces of artwork from our students. After a visit from the State Fire Marshall’s office, however, the IPS art show will be taking on a different look. This year’s art show will be online instead of in our school hallways. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed at first, but I do understand where he is coming from. This is a drastic change but the safety of our students comes first. If you have ever attended the Inman art expo, you know that the artwork has completely covered almost every square inch of wall space available,
As an alternative plan, we have decided to still hold an Art Expo online. If you will take a look at the left hand side of this page, you will notice the headings: Kindergarten Creations, Fabulous First Grade, Sensational 2nd Grade, Great 3rd Graders, and Fantastic Fourth Grade. Simply click on that link and it will take you to the students artwork. Once you see the students teacher’s names, it will take you into their class video.
Hope you enjoy the videos!
