Today's Art Room Report...


Day 94 ...this is more a week report than a day...
Had to go to the hospital for some major cramping and was out of work for 2 day. I am fine but my IV ran out and then my blood started backing up into the tube...it freaked me out, the nurse said it was fine....I guess she was right I am still alive!


While I had some time on my hands I took one of those Facebook tests that told me all about my personality. It was pretty accurate...I think.

I love my new Manatee color crayon. My little island is in Manatee county Florida were my son also lives.


This student added a back story to her work about the root system and the life cycle art project...There is a bee to do the pollination and then there is a slug who wanted to fly like the bee but could not so he got a fan and jumped in front of it so he could fly like the bee! Oh yeah I love my job!

I dressed to match the wall for the VAEA board meeting.

STEAM Project 2nd Grade Plant Roots...

2nd grade is creating a STEAM project using the plant life cycle and the root system.
We used the paper in portrait and created the ground level 1/4th the way from the top of the page. Next we added 2 or 3 types of plants or flowers above the ground level. 
Then the fun part...start adding in the roots below the ground level. Have the roots underlap each other and fill the page. 






You can add in the rain and an ant farm if you would like.


This student added a back story to her work...There is a bee to do the pollination and then there is a slug who wanted to fly like the bee but could not so he got a fan and jumped in front of it so he could fly like the bee! Oh yeah I love my job!


We watercolor painted the drawings. But remember this is art...the ground does not have to be brown and the roots do not have to be green. Use your creativity to paint your picture.

1st Grade 3D Birds...

1st grade created birds using Model Magic. We attached them to old playing cards because I could not find the black poster board I had just cut for this project. But I did find the cards!




















This is all you need! The Model Magic sticks to itself so you do not need to glue it together but it will not stick to the cards...so we just just a dab of glue to hole it in place.

Project Runway Season 15 Challenge 2...


Okay I seriously need to take a figure drawing class...

Tonight challenge was to create a look that would look good on all body types. Not sure the judges remembered that when they were making their final selections. Because even thought I loved all 3 of the top looks I do not feel any of them would look good on the "all body types". I think to judges forgot what real woman look like! 

Anyway...I would totally go on Project Runway if I never had to sew a zipper in. But if you can just pull it over your head...I am good to go.
My outfit for challenge 2 was simple solid top with sheer bands on the lower part and for the arms. Then with a basic crop pants or leggings. I can so see Heidi wearing this.
