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.

Egyptian Tomb Paintings

4th grade created these awesome "tomb paintings". We used plaster of paris on either burlap or felt (I had a bunch of both). When I ran out of plaster (oooops) my husband ran over joint compound and it worked even better! It provided a much sturdier and smoother work surface. The kids loved this project. Who doesn't like creating their name out of hieroglyphics!?
