Third grade is making me SCREAM!

I had a lot of fun doing this lesson with third graders.  We discussed the artwork and life of Edvard Munch.  He had a sad life and it shows in his art!  We also talked about how famous this painting - how it was stolen and how some people think the red sky was caused by a volcanic eruption near Indonesia!
Here are their awesome artworks!


Little Mondrian artists

The kindergarteners learned about primary colors as we discussed the artwork of Piet Mondrian.  We noticed his vertical, horizontal and broken black lines used in the paintings.  Here's our versions!



I recognize that!

If you are near Chick Fila on State Bridge (in front of Publix), stop by and see some great SBCE artwork!

And...they are off!

Whooo Hoooo!  Yippie!  Hip Hip Horray!
We packaged and shipped 796 works of art to Square 1 on Thursday.  Way to go SBCE!  October 31st, we should have the individualized packets ready for your students to bring home and share with you.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  For more information, you can refer to the Square 1 Art tab towards the top of this blog. Thank you!

Professional Development day at the Woodruff Arts Center

It's finally feeling like fall here in Atlanta and it was wonderful to spend the day in midtown Atlanta at the Woodruff Arts Center.  If you've never been, check out their website and go!  It's an amazing place with theater, art and so much more!  Just being in the area soothes your artistic bones.
I was so happy to see the Eric Carle exhibit.  It was truly amazing to see his actual work.

 I love how you can see his handwriting and the actual copy and gluing of printed text.

I always just love getting a chance to be with my colleagues.
Learning more about Adaptive Art. Thank you, Katie

My wonderful colleagues and amazing friends.  I REALLY could not do this job without you, Melissa and Katie!

Learning about using Padlet as an opening group activity.  Thank you, Kelly!

Learning about using different social media platforms in your art class.  Your ROCK, Mollie!
