A few weeks ago I put out a post on my Facebook Page that I was going to my daughter's High School to teach Art classes for the week, and I promised photos. Well, the week turned into two days, and three days the following week due to the children's sports and activities schedules. I didn't want to rush them to finish, so I offered to give them more time before I came back to finish them up. I'm so glad I did that because they blew me away. I think I learned more from them than they did from me. It was a fabulous experience, and I will definitely do it again. Everyone did a bang up job, and their behavior was wonderful...that was the part I was worried about, but all for nothing. They are a great group of kids, and so talented. I am so glad my daughter made me go ;0)...and I am so thankful to her exceptional Art teacher Mrs. McClaine for inviting me!
So as promised, here are a few photos. I couldn't take a picture of each piece (90+ children), but I have some of the pieces that really stood out.
|I gave each student eight choices of animals for them to use, and this rack held all the canvas boards. It was such a great way to store them. I might need one.|
|Only these six didn't quite get finished before I left. They only have the last two steps to go, but so far they were amazing.|
|Lots of the kids gave their animals names. We called this one Blaze the Cat! This photo doesn't do her justice.|
|LOVE this horse!|
|This pig was colored so wonderfully!!!|
|That purple orangutang was precious!|
|Cute cute cute!|
|This is Mrs. McClaine's. I love the colors she used!|
|This is one I was demoing along the way. It's not my favorite, as I had to go real fast, but it's still cute.|
|And here is the original I made that inspired the class, and in turn they inspired me much much more! They lit an excietment bug under me like I haven't felt for a long time. I truly LOVE my job!!! It's so rewarding.|
