7th grade ended the year with clay tile designs! I had 2 classes make all the tiles from clay, fired them while kids were sketching ideas, then they painted the tiles! Some outlined areas with sharpies as well. I let students paint whatever they wanted! This freedom made behavior SO GOOD.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t too excited about this project beforehand (just needed a shorter one), but they came out GREAT! Only 2-3 classes left, I’m having guest artists come speak to my classes, and doing small 1 day choice art activities with my classes.
Currently reading! Not bad considering I started A Game of Thrones a little under a year ago! Read the first four (over 1000 pages each) while competing student teaching and my first year of teaching! Phew! Hope to finish this in early summer so I can plow through a long list of books. :)
Spent allllll afternoon/night with my other art teacher matting artwork for our county exhibit! We left at 8:00, we hang the artwork tomorrow, but man does this stuff look FANTASTIC! We set all the artwork up for how we want to display it at the show. SO PROUD of my students.
If you’re in the Maryland area go to the Annapolis mall any time between tomorrow and May 16th to check out the work!
