Lascaux Installation

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!

The Winter Festival

Setting up for the festival required marketing and lots of student help. It was wonderful team work from start to finish!

The winter festival was wonderful - we had a student choir, student performances of music and dance, and student artwork on display. All the hard work well worth it!!

Printing Process

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...

Thank you Donors Choose!

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!

Let's All Get Along!

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.
