The 2nd grade just finished working on these large scale self portraits of themselves falling out of the sky. The paper was almost as big as them so they really loved getting on the floor and coloring away on these. We traced their hands and feet and then I demonstrated how to draw the rest of the body and then they went to work. Fun project.

With the Art Club I want to make sure that they are ready for the High School so I have found really different projects for them to do to challenge their creativity. This is the Cassette tape Portrait of a musican, used with a real cassette tape to create this picture. The biggest problem with this project is that the students couldn't open the cassette tape case because they have never seen one besides that it was a great project. They are hanging in our school library.

Each Year Google holds a contest for students to create a Logo for Google. This years theme was "If I could travel in time, I'd Visit..." I entered the whole school in this contest I feel that we have some really good ideas. The Prizes for the One winner is $50,000 for the School and Most importantly $30,000 for the student to use towards College. Here are a few examples from MES.
