We've had these traditions for as long as I can remember, but the mums and garters have gotten larger with time. When I was in high school our mums were smaller than the boy's garters are today, and they were even smaller when my dad was in high school :)
Well, either way, it is always fun to see everyone's adornments and the jingling of the bells as the kids make their way down the hallway.

I decided to let him give a demo to my Art 2 students and Adv. students one day last week. He was extremely nervous at first, but once he got into the swing of things he did a great job. The classes were very attentive to what he had to show and they are now applying what they learned to their own projects.
I hope to bring in former students into my classroom to give demos to my students. I believe my former students are a great resource and my students will enjoy learning from them.
I will post the picture of the piece he was doing for the demo soon.

I decided to give a lesson on imagination to my Art 1 students. I spoke to them about creativity and imagination then had them create the pieces pictured on top. The kids created these lines using ink and straws, they then had to use their imaginations and look for images within the lines they had created.
The first one is a wolf, the second is butterflies and the third is a bear (I photographed it before it was completed). I believe the students enjoyed this project and gave them some time to relax before the real work began.
The last two are from my Art 2 kids and are part of the project that I wrote about in my last post.
My Adv. and AP kids are also hard at work, I will post some pictures soon, along with a door project that my art club is working on.
Have a good weekend.
