Our school's music concert is this week and the students are singing songs from kids movies and tv shows. I always offer my art skills to help decorate for the concert to our music teacher. This year I put the kids to work doing character drawings from all the songs they are singing. They did such a great job! And the best part was they were so into it! On the first day of drawing there was a buzz of excitement, and then silence as they got to work! That's how I know they are working hard!
BEST NEW ART TRICK I LEARNED THIS YEAR IS USING LIQUID STARCH AS A GLUE RATHER THAN PAPER MACHE GLUE! IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO CLEAN UP, SO MUCH BETTER FOR BRUSHES, AND IS VERY CHEAP TO BUY!

3rd graders learned about Ancient Egypt through a short video. They learned that Egyptians believe in an afterlife when they die. To prepare the body for the afterlife the deceased body goes through a mummification process. Once the body is turned into a mummy, it is placed into Sarcophagus that holds the body for the rest of eternity. The Sarcophagus’s were works of art themselves encrypted with hieroglyphs and pictures.
3rd graders did a great job designing their Egyptian Sarcophagus. Students also wrote their names in hieroglyphics down the center of their sarcophagus.
