Our dear friend, Phyl, from There's a Dragon in My Art Room is retiring. I decided to have an ode to Phyl with my 3rd graders!! They created these dragon landscapes in collage. Phyl, you are truly an inspiration to all art educators...and I am glad to call you my friend!! Also...I think you will haunt me till I retire because every time I do a dragon project, I'll think about ya!! ha ha
Wonderful!! Love them all! I it is amazing how we have become such a great network over the years! I agree Phyl is a great role model for all art educators! :)ReplyDelete
What a great idea! When I first saw the pictures on my blog list I thought they dragons were from Phyl. You couldn't have thought of a better tribute. I, too, will forever think of Phyl when I see dragons:))ReplyDelete
Great tribute to Phyl! What a wonderful idea! BTW I love the new background and lettering Mr. E! Reminds me of The Munsters! Love it!ReplyDelete
Aren't you "the man"! That is so nice. I wish I'd thought of that!lol Good job!ReplyDelete
Love them! And great idea! Funny thing I have a draft of a post called Ode to Phyl too! I started to collect all the Phyl ideas I've used on it:) Guess the secrets out! She is an inspiration to so many.ReplyDelete
Be still, my heart!!!!!ReplyDelete
These collages are FABULOUS!! I love EVERY ONE OF THEM!! Please tell your third graders that they have done a SPECTACULAR job on this project.
And Mr. E, what a sweet tribute! I'm very flattered - I think we need to meet in person some day - and then you'll find that I'm basically a disorganized klutz with a chocolate addiction and not some sort of superhuman.
Anyhow - thank you thank you!
@ Art Project Girl - I promise to pretend I'm surprised when you put up your post.ReplyDelete
Meanwhile, folks, one week to my student art show, but remember, here in NY we're still in school for another 6 weeks - until June 22 I think - so stay tuned!
What an awesome tribute to Phyl the one and only Dragon lady!ReplyDelete
