As school gets underway it is with an excited heart that I get to see my amazing son enter into his first-ever classroom as a 4K student. If you would have asked me about this moment six years ago I would have laughed at you and probably gone home and cried. On Septemb...

After many years of trying to figure out a successful project with Gyotaku prints I finally discovered  one that I love!!! This was such a hit with my kindergarten students, we will for sure be doing it again next year. This was a three day project in 40 minute classpe...

When your middle school opens up a worm farm you have to take advantage of it!  Right? So.... of course I did. For the first day of this  project Kindergarten students spent the day drawing from observation. I mean drawing real live worms from observation. Have I gone...

Recently I was inspired by the amazing art teacher Don Masse who is always working with contemporary artists. You can learn more about his awesomeness at http://www.shinebritezamorano.com.

I have been wanting to do a project that focused more on graphic designers so I c...

For this coming school year I decided it is time to give the classroom stools a face lift. Previously the stools had numbers 1-4 painted on them. I did this my very first year of teaching in hopes I could use the numbers to dish out jobs and other odd things. Unfortuna...

Every year, each teacher in our school district does a passion project. This year I wanted to focus on developing a standards based grading system for my 4th and 5th graders. After diving into this project, I realized there was not a lot out there for art teachers and...

For the past 7 years I have had the honor to continue an event that the amazing art teacher Bridget Reil  started while she taught at our school district. Every year I have tried to spice it up with different themes. This year being the year of the eclipse I wanted to...

The night of October 11th I could not sleep. My head was filled with excitement and worry. “Did I plan for every possible scenario? Who was going to pick up the bagged lunches in the morning? I wonder what the kids will be making in the art lab?”  These are the thought...

It's March everyone!!! Students and teachers are definitely starting to feel the cabin fever. I have noticed that about this time of the year, I have a tendency to use a lot of florescent colors. What I mean is that pretty much 60% -100% of my projects involve floresce...

I first taught this lesson last year after taking a trip to the Walker Art Center with my son, and we came across some Jasper Johns' pieces. I have never seen a Jasper Johns piece that was so bright and colorful. And if you know me, you know I am all about color....

This is one of my all time favorite 1st grade lessons. I first found this project many years ago while student teaching. This project originally came from an Arts and Activities article. I cannot for the life of me remember the issue or the amazing art teache...

This was the perfect project for my second graders. It combined two things I wanted to introduce them to Dinosaurs and Romero Britto! 

On the first day I read them a dinosaur story and had them draw any dinosaur they wanted. I provided them with some how to draw dino wo...

Taking on a big project like this is always a little overwhelming during the beginning of the school year(but sometimes its nice to get these intense prepping projects out of the way if you know what I mean). I love teaching my 4th graders about paper making and why no...

My students fell in love with Levon Biss's artwork during this project! The amazing Devon Calvert first did this project last year and I loved it so much I had to try it. You can check out his blog post here: devoncalvert.weebly.com/3rd/bug-symmetry

This project has definitely become one of my favorite projects. Not only do the kids love it and the results are fantastic but it has become one of my best fundraisers for the art room raising over $1,000 a year. 

 I first became aware of glass fusing at...
