Veteran's Art 2019, Lower School Art For The Parade and Art Show (and... A Huge Happy 50th to Cathy Hicks!)

This is a fun post to share today as these were created by Lower School Art Teacher, Cathy. Guess what? Today is Cathy's 50th birthday! Thought this was one way to help celebrate how much we love her...we can share some of her art teacherin' skills! 
It is all fun and games!

 Two of our favorite people on campus!

Yup, we reused the sign...raise your hand if you like glitter?!?!

All of her classes got in on some of the celebrating!

Best Visual Arts Team in this Area! Maclay Visual Arts...Wowzy! Happy for all of us to be a part of this team! Love when we get to celebrate each other.

We love you Cathy and are super glad you are on our team! You compete us!
(save the crown, Cameron Barton is next!)

PEACE...Let it Flow and LET IT GO!

You would never know by looking at your computer or your cell phone, but these peace signs are pretty large.
You may notice that all the "Peace" signs are red and green.
Well, yeah, that was planned.
I wanted these to hang in the hall at Christmas because we had a hippy thing going in our foyer.
I think they are too busy.
Some of the colors are just awful.
I think a white background would have been better, but then you got so much smearing from oil pastels.
So, I guess white paint in the background would have been a better choice.
Acrylic paint, that is.
It was my fault they seemed to clash.
But, live and learn.
I have been teaching 30 years, but I still learn something new every day...from kids, adults, and by doing ART.


Kids traced a peace sign on their paper.
Told them to use oil pastels to fill in the peace sign.
We watercolored the background...uh, MISTAKE.
That's all, y'all.


It is December 18, 2019.  We are in the midst of the Christmas season AND Peace on Earth and all that.
Peace is hippy, but there is more to peace than coolness.  The PEACE I am talking about is the religious kind of PEACE that you get with Jesus in your heart.  A lot of us have some Jesus in our πŸ’—, but we struggle daily with letting it flow and having PEACE in all things.  
Folks, Let it FLOW and Let it GO!  

Let HIS    πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—L O V E πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—   flow.

Art Club on the Potter's Wheel (Mindful Masterpieces)

We have restructured art club in middle school to Mindful Masterpieces. We meet once a week from 3:00 - 4:00 on Thursdays. This was the first art club of the year. We joined our Upper School friends.
You can find more out about our one school initiative in the link below:
Everyone had a blast and it is amazing watching our middle school kids work along side upper school faculty! Good stuff, I tell ya!

These are the finished pieces. I think they were going to be used for Christmas gifts!

'Tis the Season Folks!
So, what all does your art club do?
Comment and share...
