GWMS Week 5.8


I can not believe this will be the last video for the year!  I have been so pleased with the students' acceptance of TAB, as well as the support of the administration at George Washington.  

Wishing everyone a happy and safe summer!

G.W.M.S. Week 5.6

Sewing has begun and we have lots of stuffed animals being made in the art room!  It is great to watch the students' sketches being transformed into 3-D soft sculptures.

The construction center opens this week!

GWMS Week 5.5

G.W.M.S. Week 5.5

Painting continues while others move on to printmaking.  I have really enjoyed seeing the variety of prints the students are making, especially the collographs.

We had a great teacher appreciation week, especially the fantastic lunch provided by the GWMS parents!

GWMS Week 5.4

GWMS Week 5.4

We have been talking about how to look at things around us in a new way - to notice the little details, and not just rely on our memory to produce a work of art.

Students are finding images of interest to them on the internet and looking at objects in the art room to use for subject matter in their paintings.  

Next week, we will begin printmaking!

GWMS Week 5.3

GWMS Week 5.3

Painting is open!  The students are always so glad when the painting center is available for them.  This past week we experimented mixing colors with tempera paint.  I am looking forward to this week and seeing what they can do with watercolors.

GWMS Week 5.2

GWMS Week 5.2

The last group of students have started the 5th rotation in the art room - I can not believe this year is almost over!  I have learned so much as a first-year TAB teacher.  I like to think the students have learned a lot too.  As the 8th graders prepare to move onto high school, it is my hope that many of them will continue to study art.
