I realized I never posted pictures from last year's workshop on my blog?!?! I placed them up on my social media.....but not here?? I'm slipping!!! With this year's Art With Mr. E's 4th Annual Summer Workshop just a couple weeks away..I thought I'd better share the pictures from last year on here....FINALLY!! ha ha
I love our time together every summer!! What an amazing group of art educators from all over middle Tennessee & beyond (last summer we had 2 from KY & 1 from Ohio)!
For our field trip we went to The Parthenon in downtown Nashville! We are blessed to have this amazing place...honestly my favorite spot in the city!
(If you've not been...you need to visit!!)
We have teachers attend from all over middle TN & other states!! I believe 7 TN counties have been represented over the summers...and 9 different states!! We also have had teachers from Pre-K- College attend. The projects are great idea starts & can be modified for the different age groups. We have so much dialog on how to apply projects in our individual settings and trouble shoot problems that might arise. It truly is an amazing three days with such wonderful peer encouragement!!!
We used plastic Christmas ornaments as the base for our plaster wrap sculptures. I purchased them for next to nothing after Christmas (I think 90% off!!!).
We have breakfast provided for the teachers each morning & snacks throughout the day!
Every summer I have the amazing Mrs. C come and speak to our group! She was our director for Visual & Performing Arts in Metro Nashville....and just an amazing human being!!!
This is inside the Parthenon...
YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS IN PERSON!
SHE IS GOING TO KILL ME FOR THIS ONE!! HA HA
(The woman on the right is a friend I graduated from BGSU with that came from Ohio for the workshop!!! She had not been to the Parthenon before & was seeing the Athena for the first time!)
We experimented with Lego printing! So fun.
We used old scratched records to paint on for one of our projects. It is a great surface to work on & a fun shape. I know in my classroom...students love working on unusual/unexpected surfaces!
HERE ARE SOME OF THE FINAL RESULTS!!
