Back to School

The slight chill in the air feels appropriate, as children and teachers are all back in school now. I look forward to another year of creativity, as I present new and exciting projects to my students.

This week, weather permitting, my Elementary art classes will be drawing the landscape of our school campus. We'll be using white pastel chalk & white charcoal pencils on black paper! I'm anticipating some very dramatic interpretations.

It's always fun to draw subjects you're very familiar with. It forces you to observe things carefully, & to see things you never noticed before. Try drawing your house, or your building, including as much detail as you can.
