2D Art Camp

In my classroom for 2D art camp, the students created all sorts of wonderful projects.  They were given many high quality materials to work with and learned how to use them.  Here is a look at some of my favorite projects from each lesson:

This Saturday, March 12th from 10am-2pm, the Westwood Recreation Department will host “March into Summer” (10% off registration fees when you sign up for summer classes March 12-15).  I will be hanging out with other teachers and students talking up my summer classes: 2D and 3D Art in July. Wegmans is sponsoring this event.

3D Art ~ explore three dimensions while learning about carving, modeling and sculpture using recycled products, mixed media, clay and more. July 11-14.

2D Art ~ explore the mark on a flat surface while learning about graphite, colored pencils, watercolor and more. July 18-21

I’m thankful to the Westwood Recreation Department for providing a place where I can teach children to express themselves through creative means.
