A lifestyle blog for Art teachers who have the same life as me.

Art club started this past week, and we hit the ground running. Our school feeds into a fine arts academy, which the students have to submit portfolios to become a part of. This year I turned art club into a portfolio prep class, so the serious kiddos could get a little extra direction. We started off the year doing a fun collage. Each student had to invent a band with a name that gave a clue to their personality, come up with an album name, then collage an album cover. They turned out really well.
Some people even made a song list. Love it.
Those plastic CD covers were donated, they may have had AOL disks or something in them. It was interesting having to explain to the kids what an AOL disk was. It made me feel really old.
