Back to School August 2015!

Welcome Back Zilker Panthers!   I cannot believe that it is ALREADY the end of August 2015, and a week has already gone by at Zilker Elementary!  I have so enjoyed seeing my students from last year, and meeting my new art students in kindergarten!  This is the start of my 18th year teaching art - and we are having a fabulous first week of school. 

 Way back in May, before summer started, my second grade classes made these beautiful sunflower paintings in the style of Vincent Van Gogh.  After learning the "double dip" method of getting two different colors on our paintbrushes, we painted these beautiful sunflowers, then cut them out after they were dry to make a large class collage.  These beautiful still lives are brightening the main hallway at Zilker right now!

Keep checking back to see what grade levels are working on for this new school year; my goal is to post once a week!
