Boom, Boom, POW!

This week my Second and Third graders did a fun Pop Art lesson inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. These amazing primary colored pieces definitely caught the eye of our passers by!

The students enjoyed writing a word that sounds like the noise it makes, and example of Onomonepeia... a big word used in English class.

Even my Fourth and Fifth graders got into the "action" (ha ha...)
Making pop up Word Bubbles also inspired by Lichtenstein.

BIG THANKS to Theresa Miller, for an awesome art lesson!

April Showers bring... PANOPLY!

It's that time of year again... I'm looking forward to Huntsville's biggest and brightest Arts Festival, Panoply!
All public and private schools in the Huntsville/Madison County area can partipate by sharing artwork in the Student Art Tent. I'm in the process now of chosing 10-12 great pieces from both Blossomwood and Highlands Elementary to show off on our frames.
The festival will be held April 27-29 in Big Spring Park. There will be tons of activities for children, music, dancing, drama, food and lots of ART!
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact The Arts Council. It is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer and have some fun.
I hope to see you there.
