A visit to Ms. Maxwell in the Art Room

Last week I had the opportunity to visit a fellow art teacher in her room. We had conferences so I was able to get there in the afternoon. Ms Maxwell has 30 children in her art classes. She was teaching a clay monster class so I wanted to give her a hand.

She used a projector to explain the lesson before the clay was given out. The class was 4th grade. I just had taught a similar project with my class. It was fun to see the different results of their creativity.  The students were so polite and I enjoyed seeing a different teaching method.

Another project I got to help with is with the 5th grade  collograph printing project.

Here they are rolling on the ink getting ready to pull the prints. They used red and black for the Chinese dragon theme.

It was a fun afternoon.
The first grade project of the day was a snowy day collage.
