My students studied the Lascaux cave paintings, made their own drawings of animals that would have been represented in these caves, and I enlarged them onto ceiling tiles. As a class we sponge painted them in, and now they look GREAT in our hallway ceiling!

This is the display of our Georgia O'Keeffe oil pastels and our autumn and winter themed mono type prints. These assignments encourage a student to build both technical and expressive knowledge of color.

My project was fully funded on Donors Choose - and because of the donors' exceptional generosity we were able to complete this mono type print lesson...
Thanks to the 30 generous donors at Donors choose, my students were able to receive printing supplies and a table top printing press! We are very grateful, and our beautiful Autumn and Winter themed monotype prints are now on display outside our library!

I just found out that my two students who had won first place in a local competition with this poster last year have also won first place in State and placed third nationally over the summer! I could not be more proud of my ladies!

Our classes looked at paintings like "Peaceable Kingdom" and "Holy Mountain", which represent animals that would ordinarily be predator and prey, or have an adversarial relationship, cohabiting in peace. We talked about why artists create these idealistic paintings, and how they apply to individuals, societies, cultures, countries, etc. Students then created images in colored pencil of animals living quietly together.
