Musings about the importance and impact of art and art education in the 21st century.

Spring Walkthrough

♠ Posted by ArtMuse

 Here are a few pictures of my room from my schools yearly "Spring Walkthrough".  This is about as close to an art show as I get.  I hang a sampling of k-5 artworks that the students have done throughout the year.  I posted about the koi pond that I displayed during walkthrough here
Even though I had a wall put up in my room at the end of last year making it a bit smaller (see post here), overall I think it looked great!

The Koi Pond

♠ Posted by ArtMuse in ,

At the end of every year my school hosts it's annual "Spring Walkthrough", where teachers line their classroom walls with the work their students have done throughout the year, turning the building into a giant museum. Since our elementary school has a little over 600 students you can imagine the chaos that ensues. This year, one of my favorite displays was my koi display. The first grade art teacher and I hung our work together and showed off her kids 2D koi and my fifth graders koi sculptures. Here are a few pics:

 The idea for the clay fish came from a video on youtube by fellow blogger "Adventures in Positive Space".  The title of the video is "Koi Fish Sculpture Tutorial"
