Second grade students in week 2 art classes drew from observation a still life arrangement of toys. Please see a video of the students at work on my website at www.classjump.com/Art. The video will be in the animoto video section and titled, "Still Life with Toys."
The AAEA held its conference in Orange Beach this past weekend. It was great to network with other art educators and to attend workshops that build skills, knowledge, and creative ideas for teaching visual art in the classroom. It was fun working with all of you and seeing your expressive masks in the works.
