Using Picture Books in the Elementary Art Room

This post contains affiliate links for each picture book title. In the art room, I often use picture books as a source of inspiration for my lessons - especially with my K-2 kiddos! Not only do I have an appreciation for the gorgeous illustrations, but I also love the vividly descriptive language that is often used. In fact, most of my lower grade art lessons actually start with me doing a read-aloud with my class. The kids love it (because who doesn't like having a book read to them?), my…

Kindergarten Sun Stitching!

Kindergarten learned some basic sewing skills, like threading a plastic needle and creating a running stitch for our summer suns. After two sessions of sewing, we used a variety of materials to create a sun face and practiced using tiny dots of liquid glue. I think these are so charming and folksy!

Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists: Clay works in all grades

Clay works in all grades

We have been having "Clay Days” over the last semester, where one day a week would be set up for clay all day. Then once that day's projects have been fired, glazed, refined, and packed - we start again with another weekday. This is a management system that makes it easier and more efficient to do clay projects with the whole school, because I can only store about 6 classes worth of projects at a time. Here are a few of the projects to we have created this year: Kindergarten fossils First…

In the Art Room: Spray Paint Wall Display!

As I've mentioned, I'm slowly "remodeling" my art room. I've been in this space for close to 15 years and I'm just so TIRED of looking at the same decor, store-bought posters, same hot -n- stinky messes. I'm super proud to say that I'm turning my life around (bwhahaha, let's be honest: no.) Okay, what I am doing is trying to get organized for the first time ever. And I feel like it's working and feelin' great BUT organizing is NOT my idea of a party. So, for that reason, I do have to hit the…
