A Bad Case of Stripes

Our First Day of Art We Are Learning to 
Be Ourselves and Live Colorfully, 
Just like Camilla Cream in
A Bad Case of Stripes
 This is a story about Camilla Cream.  She loves lima beans but doesn't want to get made fun of at school so she denies her love for them.  She soon finds out that being herself is much better than being like everyone else!  Our first few weeks in art are based on Camilla!
 Here is our door to the art room!
 And also my Bad Case of Stripes shoes I made and have been wearing for this week!
I, like Camilla, LOVE lima beans!
Each grade is making self portraits but with one color per grade!  Here are some that the 2nd, 4th, and 5th have been working on.

Once every grade has finished we will make a LIVE COLORFULLY wall display in the elementary halls with every students artwork!  Stay tuned to see that soon!

The New Elementary Art Room at Boyd Buchanan

 Here is my favorite school quote!  
I decided it was so great it needed its own mural.
 Here is ART-OPOLY Board, it is for 
the students to keep their behavior in check!

 This is Our Magic Light Cloud and 
Sea Mural We Will Work on During The School Year!

Here is my first Boyd Buchanan bulletin board!  "Give thanks with a grateful heart," is our verse of the year!  I had teachers send me what they were thankful for and I made their ideas into paper airplanes.   Here is to many more!
