February has been full of activity! Between the start of the month kicking off with the Philadelphia Eagles finally winning the Super Bowl, some Valentine's fun, and the Winter Olympics... it has been a little crazy in the art room!
I have just recently started experimenting with creating instructional videos in art class... so much fun! The students have always really responded well to any type of guided video, so I decided it was time to make a few of my own.
Yesterday, all of my classes had a clay day. Kindergarten made bird's nests and the first grade made dragons. Below are some student examples of bird's nests...
I had created two separate videos to explain the approach. You can view them both here...
This has really helped further engage the students through the process of making art and allowed me to circulate around the room to help students during each step.
Below are a few more highlights from the month of February in the art room...
