Week 14 : Party in The Art Room!!
This week has been super fun for many of our students and that's because there has been lots of partying going on. I like to reward students for positive behavior and when they have earned 9 "Green Days", they earn an art party. Green days are earned when no reminders are needed for classroom rules.

Project updates- Zentangle Still Life
Zentangle Still Lifes What a successful project! We used Sharpie for our Zentangle backgrounds and chalk pastel for our still lifes.

How to: Make DIY Colorful Geometric Textiles with Sharpies and Rubbing Alcohol
Science was never my best subject, but every now and then I find myself using a little book learning in my everyday life. And this project? Definitely one of those times. It turns out Sharpie marker ink mixed with rubbing alcohol creates a very striking effect. Add some ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape, and you'll be able to make a unique, DIY geometric textile worthy of hanging on your wall. The resulting effect is something akin to tie-die, but not in the 70's hippy sort of way... in the modern…
