I read this cool article about a Dad who made some custom art on his kids' lunch bags. Thought I'd share! Check it out : ).

Does anyone know...?

who did this fabulous lesson based off of "The Old Guitarist?" by Picasso? It was a wonderful monochromatic painting lesson that had these great step-by-step directions... I thought I bookmarked/pinned it, but I can't find it : (.

Oh blogger, where art though? I really wanted to try it out with my kiddos- if anyone knows which blog I'm talking about, I'd be ever so grateful for some help :).

A Closer Look At You

Students were asked to draw four objects that represent something about their identity or something they like. They were to zoom in, use an interesting composition or layout, add texture, and apply shading. Sometimes it's the simple, tried and true lessons, that end up being the most my students learn from! (Sorry for the bowing out in the pictures, my camera does that- argh!)

Premio Dardos

Thanks to The Small Art Teacher Blog for the Premio Dardos award! It's an award passed on from one blogger to another in recognition for their creativity, effort, and dedication. Blogging to share ideas, experiences, tips, and techniques does take time, but it's rewarding to know that your input is valued and appreciated : ).

And so... I pass the torch!:

Tales from a Traveling Teacher: Although her blog is not specifically an art education blog, Kelli is very deserving of this award for her terrific pictures, student examples, and worksheet examples. I know all of you have some classroom teacher friends that can be referred to her site!

Miss Young's Art Room: For a young lady, she's got some awesome, original lessons! I love how fresh her ideas are and she provides a lot of student examples!

Last, but not least,

Use Your Coloured Pencils: Another fabulous blog with some really cool lessons that you don't see on every typical art blog. She definitely has some projects that I've bookmarked to "borrow"- definitely a must check out!

Great job, ladies. Keep up the great work! I love working in a field and feeding off of creative people, so keep on inspiring : )
