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!
