Art Everywhere!

Does anyone else forget how Kinders are in the beginning of the year? Hehe

Art everywhere!! The year has begun! 

My honeymoon, wedding, and trip to Paris!

I can't believe how fast this summer went by! I got married, celebrated my honeymoon in Paris and am now unpacking my classroom! I absolutely loved Paris and it truly is every artistic persons dream to have visited there! The architecture, art and environment is unbelievable! 

Pictures of my classroom!

You can tell the year started! Stuff is everywhere! My theme this year is "The Art of the Picture Book." I am working with my library teacher and together we are integrating our curriculums.

Lascaux Cave Drawings

This year in my classroom I am integrating literature and illustrators work into my art lessons. I am working hand in hand with my awesome librarian at our school and making big connections with students! Below are images of 3rd grade students working in their "caves" creating realistic Lascaux style drawings. We are exploring animals in art and literature with this particular grade level. We discussed the importance of the Lascaux Caves and used the following resources as inspiration!
