So Fall Break is over...my student teacher is gone (now replaced by two practicum students from MTSU 2 days a week)....and I'm getting back in the groove of things. I feel like I've been MIA (and my stats are showing it). My second grade students are starting their radial design paintings. These large (12 x 18) paintings are a fav. of my students every year. We break it up into 2 or 3 days. Day 1 we look at radial design...draw out our designs...and begin blocking in color. Day 2 we'll continue to fill in all spaces and refine areas that might need more attention. If time allows we'll also begin outlining all shapes/lines with black. It is fun & graphic when complete (not the bad kind of graphic..hee hee). Stay tuned for continued painted goodness!!!
