Hi, I am an artist, wife, mom, gamer and the Elementary Art Educator at Donald Elementary, a sweet and wonderful school in Flower Mound, TX (outside of Dallas). This is a great place to see how we are integrating studio habits with technology and interdisciplinary connections. I also love to share my "wisdom" (Re: Experiences. From mistakes.) about teaching Elementary Art. I love what I do, and I've been doing it for a long time. Creating and teaching Art is what I live for. Enjoy.

4th Grade: Ancient Egyptian Scratch Art

Thanks to a lovely donation, I was finally able to use Scratch Art paper and OF COURSE the kids loved it! This was a great way to use line, shape and pattern found in Egyptian Art. Fun and gorgeous!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and here's to a very Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

Kindergarten Owls! So cute!

They used a variety of patterns and colors. We also learned about overlapping.
