Summer Vacation Week: A Wrap Up!

Summer Vacation Week was so fun! And the perfect way to kick start summer. We wrapped it on Friday with this pop-up hot air balloon. Here is the video:
From there we made this Origami Ocean Collage! This one was a huge hit. Kids love origami!
Our last salt dough clay project (for now) was making this garden. It was so fun and the Art Class with Cassie kids got so creative!
We kicked off the week with this Summertime Selfie. I'm actually thinking of starting our school year with this one!
Have fun!

We Are Woven Together!

I've been thinking of new art lessons to bring into my art room this coming school year. I always want my lessons to have a focus on kindness, acceptance, empathy and love because, to me, that's what art is all about. I have put together a list of my favorite books to use when teaching and I thought I'd share it with you. 
As for the weaving project, you'll need a piece of white and black paper; yellow, red, white and black paint; a paintbrush and a cup of water; scissors and glue. Here we go:
I've been getting a lot of questions lately on how I plan to approach these types of lessons in my art room. Honestly, I'm going to be spending my summer reading, listening and learning. I don't know the answer to that question...yet. But I am open to learning. For now, this is my starting point and I thought I would share.
