  • First group of 3rd graders to finish their “ I AM” self portraits.  This project was inspired by @cassie_stephenz and #artwithmrs.filmore (Pinterest). Students used @artwithmrs.e portrait drawing guides.  I’m so happy with how they turned out!
Day 1: fill black background with positive “ I AM” statements.  Day 2: go over how to draw a face and proportions. Draw 4 sketches trying out different style features before choosing favorite. Sharpie on colored card stock. Day 3: cut out selfie, trace in white copy paper & cut out.  Place white copy paper on background use chalk on edges and smear out.  Add chalk to edges and smear in.  Use foam pop up stickers to attach portrait to the background.

  • Rainbow crayons are always a hit with my students! I give these out as rewards every so often.  They're a great way to recycle old crayons and are virtually free! 
There's a post about these (search rainbow crayons) on my blog..
But here's the basic rundown -
1. Peel crayons.  2. Sort by warm and cool colors.  3. Snap crayons into smaller pieces and put in silicone cupcake molds.  4. Set oven to 275 degrees.  5. "Bake" for 11-13 minutes (or until crayons are completely melted). **DO NOT OVERHEAT! If you leave them in too long the the colors tend to completely blend. **ALSO I wouldn't recommend doing this with kids around.  The fumes may be troublesome.

  • Day 21: where you work 
#sjnielsensketchingchallenge .
.
When I was in 6th grade I told my mom I was going to be an art teacher and I stuck with that goal. I’ve been in the classroom for 8 years and I’m always surprised when people ask, “so are you the type of art teacher who makes your own art?”... YES! 
I’ve always loved sitting down with art supplies and getting lost in the creative process. I also love seeing the look on my students faces when they ‘get it’. I think the best kind of Teacher is one who is passionate about their content area and one who is always ready to share it. 👩🏼‍🎨 This post goes out to the good teachers out there- the ones who are standing up for what they believe in and who inspire daily. #redfored ❤️🧣🎒🍎
