Weaving template package done! Check out my blog for more details or my shopify or tpt store for the package! This is PERFECT for an art center or for early finishers! Students just follow along with the template (weft over X's)! Swipe to see more. #astrobrights
Shoutout to @mrs._hamiltons_art_class who was able to get amazingly complex weavings out of her 7th/8th graders with no templates! Seriously - go check out her feed!!

When introducing an art piece that uses 6+ art materials it’s tough to demo. Hopefully this poster will fill in the gaps. 😅

Are you ready for the rain? TKers brought their colorful umbrellas to stay dry under these bubble wrap printed raindrops. Let’s see how much rain we get today!

Pretty sure half of my art show prep will be me going, "Oh this looks so good! I have to take a photo of/with it!" 😄

So feet up Tuesday can totally be a thing during art show season, yes? Ok, good.
Getting ready for my whole school art show that will be next week Thursday during our Expo Night.
If you're available and want to come see my students' works or me, send me a message and I'll give you more info.
5th Grade Botany Dandelion Drawing ✍🏼🌼✨ Step by step next to her Mama 💛 while drinking Dandy tea ☕️ Swipe to see her finished drawing at the end (bottom one, Mama’s is the top). I retold Kovacs chapter on Dandelions in my own words as we drew together. She really liked the French word for dandelion 😄👍🏼 I’ll be posting my tips for how to draw plants, how to work through frustration in complex drawing, how different Waldorf teachers do this differently (sometimes even depending on the drawing!), how to work on shading/blending/pressure, good pencil and wrist grip, use of form and color in drawing, and drawing with feeling ... not just drawing a copy of nature! I’ll be making a very long winded post on our community forum tonight because it’s too long for Instagram (yes it’s open! I haven’t officially announced yet because we are working out some bugs still but please try to join! ☺️👍🏼) She was so pleased with her finished drawing!😍
Well..."I forgot to post a pic for the #MarchMeetTheMaker challenge yesterday" would be a total lie. I just didn't feel like it. 😅 I will cram both days 18 and 19 here. Keeping on track with the prompt is tiring, mind you.
Day 18, Mistake or Lesson:
There's no such as mistakes, just happy accidents. I wish.
Really, I learned to not try to create the arts I am not quite fond of just because people said they will buy (80% of the time, that's just "talk" anyways). So I started to make what I love and other true fans will appreciate them.
Day 19, Dream Collaboration:
Nothing specific comes to my mind. But working with some kind of a gift wrapping/bag manufacturer would be really awesome. I'd love to have a gift bag with a pattern of this little cute fish. (My heart was crying at @papersource shop after seeing all cute gift supplies).
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring in my part of the world and let me tell you, my heart is beating just a little bit faster as a result.
I have a fun art lesson from @artventurousblog which ties in with this time of year and I really think you'll enjoy it... Students will create a bird’s eye view drawing of dandelions using construction paper and oil pastels. Meanwhile, they will be reviewing line, shape, color and texture. And... the required materials are ones we all have in our home or school art rooms!
