A couple weeks ago I saw a GREAT idea on Lines, Dots, and Doodles.
....Check out the link....
I gave each of the teachers & many of the staff a 2 1/2 foot blank snowman. Their only instruction was to decorate it...or have their students work together to decorate it. I really wasn't sure how this would be received. This is a very busy time of the year...and there has been some "stuff" going on at our school that has caused many to be stressed/frustrated(I'm totally ignorant of such things..and blissfully happy in my little art world). I'm happy to report....THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN A HIT!!!!! Many of the teachers have come to me and said how much fun they've had creating their snowman...and they didn't want to give it over to their students!(maybe I should have a few art nights for them!!) Everyday you can find teachers looking over the snowmen...trying to figure out who did what....and smiling...laughing...forgetting about whatever was weighing on them....if only for a moment.
I hope you enjoy looking through the snowmen of Tulip Grove Elementary!
This is my van Gogh snowman... I was pretty happy with how he turned out!!!!
