Results from the Trash Art Contest

Results from the Art Contest: Unfortunately my girls did not win the Beautification Art Contest sponsered by Metro Public Works (..though I thought they should have!!!). However, they did get their art placed on the side of two trush trucks.....and the art-on-wheels will be rolling around Nashville for the next 6 months!!! Congraduation girls...I THINK YOU'RE BOTH AWESOME ARTISTS & IT IS A JOY TO BE YOUR ART TEACHER!!!!!!!!!! I'M GOING TO MISS BOTH THE GIRLS NEXT YEAR WHEN THEY GO ON TO MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!

The first picture is of Rowan's work. She did such an amazing job!!! Rowan is my fun artsy student, and I can always count on her to think outside the box!! The middle picture is Rowan & I in front of the trash truck that has her art on the side....I'm a proud art papa! The last picture is Rowan with Mayor Karl Dean in front of LP Fields(the home of the Tennessee Titans!!!)....HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!

The first picture is Kira's beautiful art work. She has been such a consistantly good artist over the years...and one of the most pleasant students I've ever worked with! The second picture is of Kira & I in front of the trash truck that has her art work on it(I look like a giant beside her!! ha ha)....once again...I can't help but be proud of my kiddo!!!
* I asked the parents of both girls if I could use their name & pictures in my blog. THIS IS A MUST IF YOU ARE GOING TO POST PHOTOS OF YOUR STUDENTS!!!!!
