So I've been in denial....denial that winter is going to rob me of time with my students. I've missed 10 days of class time over the past 3 weeks. BOOOO!!!! I hate missing school...I really do. So this past week I started doing these rain collages (because I want it to be spring...NOW!!!). Well..it didn't work...because we missed Thurs. & Friday. However...I'm loving these pieces. We talked about composition, contrast, and reviewed the elements & principles. I also tried out a class set of "glue sponges". The kids loved the glue sponges...I'm a bit mixed on my feelings toward them. Maybe I'll do a post on that later.
