Roller Coaster Schedule Week

As I discussed in last week's post, this week was a bit of a roller coaster. Monday, students participated in a strength and movement showcase. Additionally on Tuesday and Wednesday, students participated in all day practices for their music program. Needless to say, I did not see students much in the Art room.

As things calmed down toward the end of the week, I was able to have Art Club. We took a break last week from our projects to create the designs for our tee shirts, but this week things returned to normal. Several students have now taken their photographs for our Christopher Boffoli inspired projects. I believe we only have around 7-9 students that haven't had their turn. I can't wait to share their photographs! Here's another sneak peek...

After creating their foam cities for our Red Grooms inspired project a couple of weeks ago, students this week used black acrylic paint to cover the entire surface of their artwork. Once the acrylic paint is dry, students will be able to use oil pastels to add color and details to their creation.

Next week, our schedule will somewhat even out. Most students will be returning to the Art room for one last class before our Christmas break. I will not be seeing the 4th grade, as the school will be going ice skating during their class time. Additionally, I will not be seeing the Art Club. This week was their last week.

I also wanted to let everyone know, due to my incredibly crazy Christmas schedule I will be posting next week on Thursday. I will have a full update to share with everyone!
