Art Shows & Appreciation

Toward the end of the school year each elementary school hosts art shows individually, and then all of the schools K-12 participate in a district-wide show. I was happy to participate this year as a parent and contributing teacher. Thank you students for sharing the art room with me whenever I got the chance to be there, thanks to the district for my quick stint as an elementary art teacher this past fall, and thank you to all of the art teachers who have shared with me and have been so supportive. I have learned more this year than ever! Special thanks to Emily and Paula.

Here are some images of some of the artwork exhibited in our elementary schools, and my family's visit to the district show. Have a wonderful summer everyone!

Most Fascinating Blog Nomination

Voting begins this week at Accelerated Degree for some of the most fascinating art teacher blogs of the past year. I am fortunate enough to be included among the nominated for one of my posts featuring the bottle cap mural that students and I created last summer! It must be fate, because I just offered to create another mural this summer for our local elementary school.

Now the tricky part. To vote you must have a Google+ account.  If you have one, all you need to do is visit the link, and look for the second post down with the picture of a girl at an easel. The "My Adventures..." blog is listed in the comments. Add a +1 there, and your vote is cast. 

If you don't have an account, but are willing to join and cast a vote for little old me, visit Google and select the +Google tab along the bottom menu. Thanks for voting, and good luck to all of my fellow art teacher bloggers!
