An art colleague told me about this site, www.wordle.net. It's a lot of fun. You can cut and paste a list of words and then make a word cloud with them. I LOVE the randomize tool that let's you keep trying different ways. Sorta' makes me feel like I could do some graphic design. Try it out for yourself!

Here are some more quick snaps of student art and students working in the art room. Fourth and Fifth Grade are doing the Native Texas Birds Project again. Fifth and Second will be doing Monster collages, and these are partially completed examples of those. The fish are from Ms. Waguespack's Funny Fish lesson for third and second grade. Many of these lessons will be used with our annual Square 1 Art Fundraiser.
P.S. - Don't forget about Museum Day on Sunday!!!
