2011-2012 school year has come to a close.  Next year I will be teaching art at Woodland ES, Barnwell ES, and now Hembree Springs ES.  I look forward to a relaxing summer and an energized return in the fall!

1st grade Watercolor Collages

1st grade students read Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain, a Kenyan folk tale.  The students created a stormy sky effect by using liquid watercolors and salt.  Students cut out shapes to create African animals and other Kapiti Plain details.

5th grade Loom Weaving

5th grade students discussed the characteristics of weaving and made their own looms.  Students were encouraged to experiment with different stitches and combinations, and some students even created their own new stitch!
