I think we have had a great start to the year. With the first week of school under our belts, we are ready to get started with our first big project. We did a few creativity exercises last week and will finish up with one we started on Friday tomorrow. On Tuesday I will introduce our Altered Book project and students will choose their book. This is one of my favorite (as well as past students' favorite) projects. There really is no limit to what can be done with your book. The project will take approximately one week to complete. I will get back with a more concrete due date once I see what the students come up with.
In the next week or two, we will be having the first Art Club meeting of the year. We encourage anyone who likes to make art or just enjoys art to come. The first Poster Club meeting of the year will take place tomorrow, Monday, August 21st directly after school until approximately 3:30 or 4 in the Art Room. We always need artists!
