In the Art Room: Art Room Placemats!

This summer, I spent some time creating all sorts of magical movies with AOE! In case you didn't know, I'm kinda like the Meryl Streep meets William Shatner of the art teacherin' acting world. STILL waiting for my Golden Globe. 

This week, I shared one of my favorite creations: Art Room Placemats! I love them so: they offer so much information for the kids and clean up with soap and water. I purchased the information for my mats from the wonderful Teacher Pay Teacher's store Art with Mrs. Nguyen
I printed these wonderful handouts two ways: one small for the images you see on my mats and the other large so I can hang them as posters. I love that they match and the kids can find the same information both on their tables and in the art room.

The color mixing recipes came courtesy of an internet search and were my favorite price: free. All color copies were made at a local office joint that offered pathetic looking teachers discounts. I spent a 1/2 day with the help of a kind assistant cutting, gluing and running these bad boys thru the laminator. They've lasted us a while and I hope to get many more years out of them!
This summer, I created several short clips like this one as well as a course and workshop video with their AMAZING film crew and WONDERFUL staff at AOE. It was such an honor and pleasure to work with them!

SOOOOO...that being said, stay tuned: tomorrow my AOE Studio: Fibers Course will launch! Check back here for all of the details as well as a super sweet discount code I have for y'all!

  2. Those turned out great! I am so NOT crafty but I think with your simple tutorial even I could make some. I already have tons of leaves that I don't use so I'm one step ahead. Thanks for the inspiration!
