Happy New Year!

January 2, 2019

I hope this post finds you, your family, and friends happy and healthy!


2018 was quite the rollercoaster!  I created a human being (she's the red-head on the left), I started a new career, and am learning how to juggle all that...somehow?   

A drool-free, smiling picture of all three of us is slightly miraculous, no?  We drool a lot.


One huge change this year was TIME.  Phew, how much of that did I waste before having a child?  All the time I spent sitting, eating, reading, making, thinking, and shaving.  The audacity of me, really


With all these shifts in time, and returning to teaching, which is a learning curve of the highest degree, my blog has sadly slid into hiding.  While I don't make any resolutions that I'll have the ability to post much more.  I do promise I am still here.  *waves* 

Since you last saw me here, I've been devoting %110 percent to teaching K-5 art at Anclote Elementary School.  


K-5 Art Projects 

It's been so fun to look back on all the beautiful things we made.  As a first year teacher in public school, I often feel like I am ten steps behind.  And then I sing an annoyingly fun song about counting to ten. However, when I was able to see all of the things that my students have learned and MADE, I was overwhelmed with how creative and inspirational they are.  


 Video links for Projects

 I do video tutorials for nearly every project in the classroom.  If you're interested in how to do these projects at home or in your classroom here's a link!


Some of my favorites are listed below:


1. Tissue-Paper Snowflakes



2. Scratch-Art - with no dry time!



3. Watercolor Spider-Webs 


 4. Spooky House (Value scale)



5. Bat Pointillism 



Here's to a healthy, creative, kind, and joyful 2019!
