This blog chronicles what art my K-5 Art students do in the Art room. The blog is set up to be a stream of art created by all my students. Sections for each grade help parents find their child's or children's work. It is important for parents and students to see the progression of art from Kindergarden through 5th Grade.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago- Thank you UMS!
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
Last year Ms. Machida (retired Music Teacher) and I earned the DTE School of the Year for Arts Integration. In honor of us receiving this award we were given free tickets to a UMS performance. The performance our 3rd and 4th Graders saw was The Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. It was amazing. The images that are below are drawing the students did after the performance. The drawing mannequins were put in different dance poses. The background was inspired by Marc Chagall's American Windows which was used for inspiration for the performance.
American Windows were created to celebrate the country as a place of cultural and religious freedom, dealing with the arts: music, painting, literature, theater and dance.
