These are a few photos of spare propellers for the QM2. They are beautiful functional pieces of art. Check out the detail on each one. The waves have a repeat pattern that illustrates movement. In good weather, they allow you
out onto the Open Observation Deck where the "Commodores Cufflinks" (8 spare propeller blades) are on display. This spot on the boat was one of my favorite places to visit each day on my daily walk.
This place is at the front of the promenade deck. The deck swerves behind the shelter of the bridge screen,
giving picture window views of what looks like an avant-garde sculpture
garden. Yes, in the middle of the Atlantic you can walk through a sculpture garden. Now as an art teacher this is amazing!!!! It appears to be a series of huge polished metal fins.
Eight spare propeller blades, kept there in readiness for
propeller-related emergencies for QM2.
I am so glad to be able to share this post with you. Amazing just how something ordinary can be extraordinary by the way it is stored or displayed! Enjoy 1969

Oh the details in some of the faces...

This summer I was able to check off a bucket list item. I was able to visit Glasgow, Scotland. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery was just spectacular. I was able to see this exhibit by Susan Cave. Click links below to learn more.
Third Grade made these "out west" landscapes to go along with their Grandparents' Day song. Obviously, this was a very involved project. I liked the results, though. Directions:
We talked about the desert landscape.
Kids drew the landscapes.
Kids painted the landscapes.
Kids outlined parts of the landscapes with oil pastels.
Some kids cut out cacti and flowers out of construction paper and glued them on their art.
Then, I brought all my old boots, cowboy hats, and bandanas to school. The kids picked a hat, some boots, and a bandana of their choice. They dressed in the western garb and posed. I snapped the pictures. I cut the pictures out and we glued them on the landscape.
Fun Project for third grade. We got lots of compliments from parents, teachers, and students. Make sure you have at least 3 class periods to complete this art activity. This project requires the teacher to go the extra mile.
Here's a clip from the Blues Brothers with Jake and Elwood singing, "Rawhide".
Just sharing our auction items from this school Year. Above is a collaborative watercolor piece from Upper School. Below is a photo puzzle of places on our campus designed by our AP art class with Kyle Maurey.
These swings scream FUN. Cathy Hicks in Lower School helped create these collaboratively in her classes.
Cool piece that has a word written in different fonts that is a memory of US senior year!
