Check out some of the flowers from a few years ago.
Last week, we had an art teacher training held at the VMFA about teaching reading using art. It was excellent and I think especially exciting for use with elementary students. I try to include literacy in many of my lessons from writing and reading to talking about art. So, today I was signing up my baby for a reading program at the library and found these links to lots of resources encouraging literacy. Enjoy!

I am in the planning stages of a printmaking lesson and want to do something collaborative with the students and I have a HUGE canvas that I have been meaning to find a way to use with lots of the kids so I think we are going to make stencils and do a Ryan McGinness Inspired work. I am excited to see some of his stuff at the VMFA this year. Also, perhaps we will be designing snowboards in honor of the winter Olympics! Idea time!
