Post 57 - Photos of Friday's 6th Annual Chalk Drawing Contest, which I run... And, some nice shots of my kiddo's murals, in progress...

Blogging my evolution as an artistic art educator - An art-based experience... 

First place winner

Theme winner - Friday the 13th

The following photos are shots I took of the murals my Advanced Art students are working on finishing up right now, on the walls outside the art room... Our new building needed some "character"! They are doing a great job, and each year I intend to let a few more students add their personal touches... The goal is to fill the walls in the art hallway with student murals!

Safety, health, happiness, and peace... Pam

Post 56 - A new page, and some... SCOOP!!

Blogging my evolution as an artistic art educator - An art-based experience... 
This page gave me quite the "pain"... The title went through a seriously awkward "don't know if I like that" stage. But, with persistence, and a little "away" time... I pulled it through, with flying colors!

One of the fun aspects to this creation came from my desire to challenge myself not to grab a flower, as an embellishment "fall back". I wanted to answer this one differently, and because I am thinking about materials and supplies I own and love, but haven't used lately, I went for the Miracle Compressed Sponge... And, once I knew what the title was going to be, I knew that "heavenly" clouds were the PERFECT choice for embellishment... So happy with the result!! 

OK... The scoop is... I am "back in the scrappin' saddle again"!!

After having been in semi-retirement from design team work, since I had to finish my Master's (which ya'll know I did), I threw my hat back in the ring for a FAB "gig" at a very cool site... Scrapbooking from the Inside Out (owned by a sweet lady named Rachel)... And...

I was blessed (along with 3 other new ladies) to be selected to make art for her for the next 6 months.... YEAH!!!... The link to the site is in the left sidebar, so come on over and check things out. Don't worry if you forget, because I will keep you up-to-date HERE too!

Safety, health, happiness, and peace... Pam
