Musings From the Art Room

In addition to teaching a regular 8-2pm school day, I offer afterschool art classes to the kids.  We meet from 2:30-3:45.  Parents love it because the kids just stay and don't have to be carted anywhere!  I love it because they all WANT to be in the room with me making fabulous art!  Each month we focus on different mediums.  This month was all about paint. 

I teach 3 days afterschool with K-1 on Monday, 2-3 on Tuesday and 4-5 on Wednesday.  Every class has I think 23 kiddos?  Yes, I know!  But the difference between the day classes and these is that there are no discipline issues....it is fabulous!  I also have 2/5th graders in the younger two classes who help me out.  It works great.

The munchkins did a wonderful job of following my lead with their paintings.  They took two sessions to complete.  The older kids painted cardinals (which I totally spazzed on and forgot to take photos of!!) and the babies made some super duper cute portraits.  I'll be showing those off next week! Until then have a great one!!
