Looking for attention grabbing art projects? Check out "Dynamic Art Projects For Children"by Denise M. Logan, Crystal Productions. One of my favorite projects from the book is The Blazing Banyan Tree. It is such a high impact project that it is a great way to draw kids in at the beginning of the year. My students really enjoy working on this project. If you would like to see more examples of this project check our Artsonia exhibit.
Over the past 30 years I have taught art to kindergarten - 8th graders in a variety of configurations. During the 09/10 school year I will have 1st-6th graders and will be working in two buildings. I live in a small midwestern community with my husband and two children ages 13 and 10. I also enjoy good food, the great outdoors, our pets and spending time with family and friends.
