Painted Graham Crackers

The week before any break is usually a little chaotic, this week was no different.  AP Art History finished lecture a little earlier than planned and instead of moving on to a new unit before a week and a half off, I decided the students deserved a little change in pace.  So, as a treat and something fun for the last two days before break, I brought in graham crackers and frosting.  The students chose a famous painting and recreated it on the cracker.  As you can see the 'paintings' turned out pretty good!  I was happy that we got this in before the ice day on Friday.  Happy Holidays to all!

Washington's Newest Club: Photo Club

Photo club started last Tuesday with a short initial meeting and a photo scavenger hunt around the halls of Wash.  Each week members will be given a theme to photograph.  Photos will be shared via Instagram and members are encouraged to comment on the photos.  We will also be viewing the photos during the meetings on Tuesday's. 

Everyone is welcome to join and post images to Instagram using #crwashphotoclub.  I will post the theme for the week here and on the whiteboard in my classroom (room 241).

This week's theme: Black and White.  Now, go take some pictures!

2nd Annual NewBo High School Art Show

Today is the day! We are fortunate this year to be holding the show in first floor of the Cherry building.  All four of the CRCSD high schools are participating.  The space is wonderful and filled with lots of people enjoying all the student artwork.  All of the artist studios are also open for Christmas gift purchases!  There are a lot of activities happening today in the NewBo district for all ages.
