Art to Remember is upon us (me) and I haven’t even started one project. We will be starting the day we get back from holiday so I wanted to have this ready to go for my students.
I love the winter holidays. I love the time together with family and friends. I love the decorations and I love the crafts. An art teacher I follow posted that she is not a Hallmark factory for her school and therefore does not do holiday artwork. I absolutely respect that but I do love making holiday art so I thought I would share some of what we’ve been doing since I haven’t posted in forever. 😳
Elf legs! Ornament piles! And Kinder Rudies!
How I’ve been feeling this season:
Hey guys! I’m so excited! I woke up this morning to this little message:
200 followers! I love sharing what my students are doing in my class and I am so thankful for the art education blogging community. I seriously don’t know what I did before I discovered you. Y’all are the best. Thanks again!
As much as I love the traditions and art of Dia de los Muertos, I’ve never really been around or involved in any legitimate celebrations. I read about it. Watch movies about it. Make art with my students about it. But I’ve never had an opportunity to see it and be a part of it in real life. All that changed on Sunday.
I found out about a Dia de los Muertos festival happening in Charlotte. It was held at the Levine Museum of the New South and it was great! There were T O N S of people there so we didn’t get to do everything. But we looked, and read, and observed, and listened to everything we could.
Before we even walked in the door, we were greeted by La Catrina! Photo op!
After a long day at the festival, I went back to my first love (French everything) and ate crepes and macarons in Romare Bearden Park. It was a perfect day and I enjoyed spending it with family, learning about a different culture together. ❤️
Kinders are going to be learning colors and color order next week. I saw a picture on Pinterest for this idea but the link doesn’t lead to a lesson or the picture for it – at least not anymore. Shout out to the creator!
Here are a few results! I love them. 😍
