One 5th grade class was a week behind due to a snow day. So we did a quick one day min Monet drawing using oil pastels. I had a table full of Monet images, they had to choose one, and replicate a similar artwork using Monet's Impressionistic style. They glued on a gold fancy frame when finished and I had them laminated. The turned out great and were a great addition to the Monet hallway!!!

After creating a large Monet Mural, each 4th grader made a mini Monet painting. These are painted on tiny pieces of wood that were donated to the school. Modge Podge was painted over the top to seal the paint. A magnet was added to the back to be used for refrigerator art! These were finished just in time for Christmas gifts if they chose!

I've been out on maternity leave the first 12 weeks of school. My sub started the year off the same way I would have, making a giant Where's Waldo wall. Each student made a mini self portrait to add to the wall. Last year, it said, "Forget Waldo, Where is Mrs. Stelmach?"(our principle)...This year my sub changed it to my name! Very thoughtful of her! She made a cute drawing of me holding my baby. The kids love trying to find themselves, their friends, siblings and even Waldo was added too!

Sorry for not posting for months! I've been busy with the recent birth of our first child, Brodie born in July. I was lucky enough to have the first 12 weeks of school to spend hugging and kissing my little one to pieces! But now its back to reality! I plan to post some pictures of the neat lessons my long term sub did (with her permission of course). I am starting my time back with a Monet unit and then a Chihuly unit! Can't wait to see how they turn out and will be sure to share!

Each year, 5 artworks are chosen to be framed in the school office art gallery. These artworks are hung until the students graduate from High School! Our supportive parent group pays for the framing each year. I just love they way the office looks with all these amazing student artworks on display! What a fantastic way to welcome guests to our school!
