Here's my Youth Art Month bulletin board... only 2 months late! I saw a "There's no place like..." bulletin board on Pinterest and though I didn't immediately plan to make my own version, it popped into my head when I was trying to plan for YAM. I figured since we're in Kansas it was a good idea! Some Kinders helped me paint a giant rainbow (and only a few argued with the order I wanted the colors to go in) which I cut out for the biggest element on the bulletin board.
I used a projected picture of Judy Garland's Dorothy onto some poster board to save some time painting her and finally found a use for some of the TONS of glitter that found their way to my room over the summer. I always save my bulletin board elements so that I can reuse them in the future.
I also used the bulletin board as a place to display the student artwork I selected for the Kansas Youth Art Month show. Each art teacher in the state can show one student work per school in which they teach. I was really proud of this 2nd grader and her artwork. She created a collage background with magazine papers and worked for several weeks on her self portrait drawn with colored pencils. She got a pretty good likeness! I feel like her artwork held up nicely to the traditional projects selected by the other KAEA members.
After a lot of trouble switching my blog over to the new domain, all caused by a silly mistake that took about 5 minutes to correct after I finally got someone to help me, my blog is back up and running. I have TONS to post about in coming months.
Also, there's only 2 weeks of school left so while I'm excited to be wrapping up another year, I'm feeling the time crunch of wrapping up another year! How long do you have left?
