Wordle: Boone Art 2

An art colleague told me about this site, 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!

The first panel of artwork

The first panel of artwork is up in the hall. Don't these 'Tree Silhouette Landscapes' look amazing?! (This image is a little bit fuzzy. I'll try to some better ones up soon.)

Kinder and First Grade Self-portraits

First Grade


Here are some of the amazing and adorable kinder and first self-portraits!

Some more student work!

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!!!

Austin, TX — The Austin Museum Partnership is proud to host the twelfth annual Austin Museum Day — a free, city-wide rediscovery of Austin museums. On Sunday, September 20, take the entire family out on the town to enjoy local exhibits and activities at 28 participating institutions!

Special activities planned include: Robotics past & present at the Goodwill Computer Museum; live music at the Texas Music Museum; a chance to make your own collage at Mexic-Arte Museum; and a Cyberchase at the Austin Children’s Museum.

The Austin Museum Partnership is a consortium of Austin-area museums organized in 1998 to promote collaborations for the mutual benefit of the public and the museums.

The membership includes art and science museums; historic sites and history museums; nature preserves, natural habitats, and botanical gardens; the University of Texas library and art repositories; a Presidential library; a children's museum; a museum about Texas music; and the spectacular Texas State Capitol. And best of all, it's all right here in Austin, Texas!

Need a camera for the art room!

I guess I am going to have to get a camera for the art room here at Boone, so I can start posting images of what we have going on. I hope to have images up soon, and a link to my A.I.S.D. teacher web page. Stay tuned!
