So this post is kind of random, I just had a few pictures I want to share.
The new art teacher is pretty far-out!
One of my 5th grade students brought this book to Art the other day. I remember reading some of the books in this series when I was in grade school but it cracked me up!
Mauvelous- this crayon name cracks me up! I like to say it: mauvelous, mauvelous. I wonder what kind of credentials you need to be in charge of naming crayon colors...
This was my first experiment with using old CDs for making art. I started off going for a monoprint. I used slightly watered down tempera paint (all I had at school) and I slightly turned the CDs when I overlapped them to try blending the colors. The CDs kind of stuck so I'm going to try gluing something on the back to work as a handle. Then I used some of the extra paint to add more rings around the CDs. I think there is potential with this idea but I'm going to try to come up with a few more.
