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.

Calling Target: Graphic Design Drawing Lesson

My third graders learned a little about creating graphic art. They focused on symmetrical circles filled with cool lines designs and patterns. Actually, I think they have mastered the idea...now I am just waiting for Ikea or Target to call for the designs! hee hee!

It was so easy to demonstrate how lines, shapes and patterns fill our visual world. Every class had at least 3 kids wearing shirts or hoodies featuring graphic designs. They totally get the idea, and now they appreciate the time and patience it takes to create such art.

Students choose their own media from a variety of colored pencils, markers and permanent markers.

Wouldn't these look AMAZING on t-shirts or hoodies? Sheets and pillows? Shower curtains? Skateboards?
