Ready for a new school year!

After a wonderfully relaxing summer, it's time for those big yellow buses to roll! I will miss my lazy mornings on the deck and the precious time with family and friends, that's for sure, but the coffee is on and the halls are ready and waiting for another group of young artists. It's been a busy few days...prepping the art room and halls, teacher in service day, new student orientation, and Sunday's Open House for parents and students...and now it's showtime!

Over the years I've learned to save work in May to display in August, which makes preparation much, much faster...got it down to just three days this year!

Third grade sunrise/sunset water colors

Yummy ice cream cones by last year's second graders


A variety of framed art work by students in grades 2, 3, and 4!
An eye-catching display based on a study of Louise Nevelson,  
created by last year's seventh grade students
And a featured work by one of my sixth grade students whose portfolio won her an opportunity to attend the Dorothy Myers Yeck Scholarship Studio at the Dayton Art Institute!

Thanks to the stenciling by a talented staff member, our students climbed to the second floor to begin the year inspired by the words of Mother Theresa.
I hope your year is off to a great start!
