About a year ago I did an artist-in-residence at Greenville Elementary. We were creating art for the “Art in Transit” program. The art from the high schools and elementarys are displayed on and in a bus.
They wanted the art to tie into the curriculum they were studying. The other day I ended up in Logan and was able to catch the bus with the art work. It was so fun to see the students art printed and displayed in the bus.
Sometimes you get a lot of critiquing when you are doing children’s books. My favorite critiquing is done by the students I teach. Here are a few excerpts.
“Thank you for chosing my school for the art thing. I am very thankfull. My favoret thing to do is art so this was fun. From Kaeli
“Thank you for helping us to draw stuff. I really liked it. It was super duper fun.” From Jack
“Thank you so so so so much for teaching us how to do art. You’re AWSOME. Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you.” From Lauren
“Thank-you for coming to my school (greenville). You are very good at art. You are the best art teacher ever. I hope you can come again soon.” From a student Adele
“Thank you for helping us drow and Paint. My favifort thing was dipping the fethers in the colerful water. Thank you for helping us draw the Native Amerians and Paniting them.” From Katelyn
“Thank you for helping us become better dawers. I miss you.” From Lauren
A lot of the cards had portraits of Native Americans and chuckwallas drawn. When students draw, they remember the lesson.
So a big thank you from the students at Greenville for putting a smile on my face.
A little bit of show news, “Old Glory” won the blue ribbon at the Utah State Fair in watercolor.
