On another note, I have to apologize for being so terrible at updating this site this year! It has been a crazy busy few months and this has simply fallen by the wayside. I did get married in December, so you may notice that I have a new name...don't worry, it's still me. :-)
I am looking forward to closing the year with a new group of sixth and seventh graders and continuing to see my eighth graders develop their skills and talents. Currently, the 8th grade is working on a color theory painting on a subject of their choice. We are reviewing color schemes and how color speaks to them and the viewer of their artwork. I purchased canvases for them to paint on this year and I think most of them are pretty excited about the project. I plan to post the paintings when they are finished. Be on the lookout for at least one more update before this year is over! Thanks for stopping by!
