I think that kids will rise to any expectations you have and if you set that expectation high, they'll meet it every time. I believe every child has a gift that needs to be nurtured. Not all of these children will grow up to be artists but art is in every single thing and will touch every single part of their lives whether they know it or not. I feel really blessed to be in a position to give them that insight. Helping students be curious and wonder takes them really far. There's never just one way to do everything, that's one thing that is really important and I want kids to know. Our art studio mantra is, "You can never mess up in art!" When you think you messed up, just change your plan...never give up!  A lesson that I hope every student takes away on their journey beyond the art studio.

This weeks in-home art exploration K thru 4th:

In this video from her Robot Week Cassie Stephens gives a complete step
by-step lesson on drawing and painting a robot. We learn how to use water and water soluble markers to create an exciting paint effect on our robots. If you don't have any markers, no worries any drawing tool will do. We use the elements of art and some simple art supplies to create our masterpieces. I hope you enjoy her uplifting teaching style as much as I do.
Give it a try and remember you can't mess up in art! 



It’s only been a week and I miss ALL of you. I can't wait for us to be back together again in the art studio! In the meantime, I'm working on posting some fun links to keep your imagination working at home. 
Stay tuned...

keep calm
