2016 Art Show!!!

I have to say, I'm a BIG FAN of having our all-school art show in March (rather than April).  All year, it hangs over my head, but this year, I have the rest of March, all of April and May to just focus on teaching and not 'is this going to be in the art show? Does each student have two quality pieces for the show?'
Here are some pictures from this year's fabulous show:

And yet more photos of our student-led "make art" tables:

I've decided that I'll add more signage next year directing students and parents from the primary side of our building to the intermediate/upper grades.  And probably have kindergarten, first and second grade teachers add something about the "make art" tables in their newsletters, because we didn't get TONS of primary traffic down in the upper grades where the make art tables were.  The third grade helpers kept complaining "no one's coming for us to help!" because they were at the farthest end of the building.

And finally, some shots from our Selfie station:

I feel very grateful that the art show went so smoothly (and it's over before spring break!).  I'm looking forward to Chicago next week and my very first ever NAEA conference!  Happy art teacher'in! (and feel free to ask any questions about the set up/running of the show if something is unclear)


  1. I think the Mona Lisa needs a shave, Ha.
    Nice job on the art show, everything looked fantastic and the kids and parents had a ball.

    1. Thanks, Stefan! And thanks for all your help!

  2. I love the "student-led" art stations! Always looking for adding more interactive activities to my art show and that's a great idea!

    1. Thanks! Totally stole it from my daughter's art teacher (in my same district) and have been doing it for several years. It's a big hit!
