This blog is a working record of my experience as an elementary art teacher. My successes, not-quite-successes, ideas, inspiration, projects, challenges and general art classroom "stuff" can be found here, along with some tidbits about life outside the classroom once in a while.
Today I had to teach art from a cart (well, not even really a cart, just some tubs!) because the book fair has taken over my classroom for the week!
On the search for something not too messy but lots of fun, I found this paper line sculpture idea from a few different websites, including Texas Art Teacher's blog. The kids had a blast with it!
K-3 did this project using paper strips and paper towel tubes cut into rings.
The photo above is work by 3rd Grader James C.
When finished, we displayed work outside the art room door. This is 3rd Grade's display, and K-2's work filled the wall outside the other door into the room (pics coming soon). The kids have received lots of compliments on their work and several staff have said that the hallway looks great with all the color! It will remain on display until after the art show at the end of April.
