This year my principal asked if I could change my schedule for a couple of weeks and become an Art on a Cart teacher, in order to help out with a class that was growing while we add on an extra classroom to the school.  Instead of doing that, I asked if I could do a mural on the large storage building in the back of the school.  My principal and superintendent were supportive and we ordered paint and I got to work.  The middle symbol is our schools logo and coming out from that is a color wheel created with students hands(about 550)  I am not done yet, but this is a great project for every student to be involved in.  More to come in the next week or so.
This is the main reason I have not posted any elementary projects.

Positive Quotes / Hand Lettering

This is the first art project from my art club this year.   We again worked on hand lettering a positive message. Students got to choose their quotes and then drew them out.  I have 15 students so I split their work up around the school, so far we have had a great response.

Stain Glass Hands

This project is a good one to start the year off with the 3rd grade.  We trace our hands, put an X through the paper and then they  have to draw 3 lines that intersect with their hand.  Then when they color they have to use primary and secondary inside or outside the hand and the other for the background.  Its a pretty easy assignment but its mostly based about if they can follow directions or not.   Either way these turn out pretty great.
