Here is a sneak peek at the loveliness that came back from sending third graders home with disposable film cameras.
I am constantly searching for/finding ways to show my students how much can be learned, especially if you don’t just “have it.” Looking at this next group of photographs by one of my students, Erich, I was reminded of what it looks like to just have it. Erich could have taken these photographs regardless of what I taught him in art class. Bravo!
What do you do when it seems like the only news out there is sad or bad news?
Third graders make good news by sharing positive messages of hope through art: Thank you to Shannah at newcityarts blog for this beautiful idea!
I don’t run an official Art Club, but almost every day, a bunch of kids end up in the art room during their lunch or recess. Because this is my prep period, unless a student was absent and needs my direction, I usually take a pretty hands-off approach and say, “teach each other,” and they do! I snapped a couple of photos of fifth graders helping one another with “finger weaving” or “finger knitting”: Before the above photo was taken, Violette said, “Ms. Ejaz! My piece is almost as tall as you!” I told her that’s not very hard to do.
By the way, I’m 5’1″
Second Graders created these warm and fuzzy artworks inspired by artist Kim Welling’s whimsical “Instant Comfort Pocket Box.”
I knew my second graders had to make these when I saw the comfort boxes on Pinterest and thought to myself, I want to make a comfort box! And who wouldn’t love to receive one of these? I really love Welling’s art work and the hand-drawn yet graphic qualities it carries…I think it’s a gift if you can create art that is so easily accessible to people of all ages. Enjoy
