It's been a long, long, loonngg time!

I realize that it has been quite a few months since I have posted, I am not entirely sure where the time has gone! My school is bigger than ever (officially the largest elementary school in Nashville with over 950 students!), we are now large enough that we have three art teachers at our school, which is great! I have been team teaching with the new art teacher a lot, helping him learn the ropes. I have also been helping to train my other fellow art teachers in the new portfolio assessment, which has been interesting and time consuming to say the least. In addition to that, my friend Ted and I have led two art workshops as well, one on kindergarten art and one on green art. I am also in charge of our schools after school LEAPS program, so trying to stay on top of the training, payroll and student schedules has taken up a tremendous amount of time. I a now at school from 7:30 am until about 6:00 pm Monday thru Thursday, and normal time on Friday. I am by no means complaining, but only recently realized how crazy busy my life is, winter break can't come soon enough!!! 

Anyways, now on to something fun! In my after school class, we played with "snow" and oil pastels. I had the students draw a fun snowy day picture, and then gave them the "snow" to add on. The snow is made from mixing equal amounts of shaving cream and Elmer's glue. The glue keeps the shaving cream from breaking down, and dries nicely, creating nice fluffy snow. Some of the kids tried rolling it into balls to make a 3D snowman, but that didn't work too well.
