Totally copying @pcgugel my A Tale of Two Art Room compadre. Andy Goldsworthy landscape art coming up! I couldn't resist the warm fall Iowa day and the outdoor classroom located next to our school. We can do clay busts this winter. But for now!!! Landscape art -Tam #arteducation #artteacher #iteachart #elementaryart
Students are loving owning the expectations and sharing them with their table mates. I love hearing them repeat instructions to those that "lost" them. I pick students that are attentive at carpet time to be the art teacher in training. Their job is to help students like a teacher would. Thanks for the awesome idea @cassie_stephenz #artteacher #arteducation #iteachart #elementaryart #dollartree
Student teacher! Each year, I look to find students who have a natural tendency towards a skill we are learning and then have them teach what they know. This fifth grader is into cartooning, so how perfect to have him educate younger students learning about near and far portrait perspective. They are creating a crowd of cartoon characters using overlapping, larger heads in the front, smaller heads all the way back. Loved playing Roll a Character face to kick off the lesson. Creative!! #artteacher #arteducation #elementaryart #iteachart
Meet "Leonardo daFishi!" He's often found flying around the the art room during class discussions. Other times he watches students get creative from his fishbowl. #artfun #flyingfish #checkforunderstanding
Self-portraits with watercolor wash backgrounds and movement squiggles(where light meets dark) Sometimes it's a framework of process that allows my students to explore their personal styles. And sometimes, it's just good old basic art elements and principles that give them the framework for individual style #iteachart #iteachwhatsyoursuperpower #arteducation #arteacher #studentart
A very sweet surprise from artist Gunter Beier of Germany came to our small Midwest school this summer. My fifth grade had interviewed him by email and sent photos of the work they had produced after studying his compositions. As a surprise, Gunter Beier sent us a signed print for our school. Since most of my rural students had never seen a museum or been exposed to fine art, this was monumental! Our local paper picked up the story. #artteacher #arteducation #iteachart #elementaryart #middleschoolartteacher
