Marc Chagall Stained Glass

I found a great stained glass lesson in the SchoolArts Magazine that I took and changed for creating "Marc Chagall Stained Glass" landscape artwork pieces. Their pieces are based off the painting "Paris Through a Window"

I used "The Dreamer for the Village" by Michelle Markel to introduce the art of Marc Chagall to my students. It's awesome!

Symbaloo....What's this?

Check out my new SYMBALOO page - this is where students, etc... can go to see some of the websites that we use in the Art Room! There's some great websites with games, facts, videos, etc... that can help enrich children's lives through art.

I have 2 pages: 1 for computers and 1 for IPads
Hope you enjoy the site!!!!

Native American Kachina Dolls

Came up with idea when I seen this book: "The Lost Kachina" by Heather Irbinskas.

These were a little challenging because of all the pieces and parts but the results were awesome and my students loved making their own doll.

The Colors of Us!

I seen this book on someone's Website and I just loved the title - "The Colors of Us". I'm always looking for great books to us in my art room that aren't necessarily art book. This is perfect for teaching kids about the various skin colors and hues.

My third graders really learned a lot from this project: how to use a compass, rulers, various lines and how to create art without always using a pencil first.
