There are many, many things I love about being an ART TEACHER...too many to list.
However, at the top of the list is displaying my students' artwork.
Sure I love to show their work off, but it also is a time for me to take stock in my teaching.
It shows me I have accomplished something.
Something more than spending my time
fulfilling requirements of the powers that be,
and going through the motions of my day.
It shows me that I have had fun!!!
It really is a blast to teach the age I teach.
At 5, 6, and 7 years old they are all excited about everything you introduce to them.
And do they ever love to make ART!
YOUTH ART MONTH
Here's my students' work that was on display at our local mall as part of the YAM celebration...
|Hundertwasser style portraits and Cardinals in Winter...all big hits!|
|We studied Claude Monet. The snail was part of a lesson on the life in Monet's Garden.|
|Don't you just love the expression on the top pig's face?|
|Crazy about this frog!! It was part of the life in Monet's Garden also.|
|Waterlilies and bridges are always favorites. We pretended to take a trip to Paris to see Monet's water gardens. We traveled through video with a little girl named Linnea.|
Hope you enjoyed the show!
